From the Publisher:
Former Ohio Attorney General crusades against wrongful conviction and shows how citizens can prevent this terrifyingly common miscarriage of justice.

“Wrongful criminal conviction is much more frequent than most Americans believe. The thought of imprisoned innocent people haunted me. I became determined to try to do something about it.”

- Jim Petro, Former Attorney General of Ohio

The flaws in America’s execution of justice lead to an unacceptable number of wrongful criminal convictions. Jim Petro was confronted with this issue when the innocence of several convicts serving life sentences was called into question. In False Justice, Jim and Nancy Petro detail and challenge eight myths of justice:

1. Even if he is innocent this time, he/she is probably a career criminal

2. The conviction of an innocent is extremely unlikely

3. Of course he/she did it—he/she confessed

4. Wrongful conviction is the result of innocent human error

5. With so many professionals involved, errors are caught long before the verdict

6. Eyewitness identification is the most reliable testimony

7. Even if the jury is wrong, it will be fixed on appeal

8. It is up to professionals in the justice system to fix problems in the justice system

False Justice corrects these common misunderstandings with an important truth: true justice requires constant vigilance and is the responsibility every citizen.
