Rebecca Brown, director of policy at the Innocence Project, joins “In Focus” with Cheryl Wills to discuss exonerating the wrongfully convicted. Founded in 1992, the Innocence Project works to exonerate the wrongfully convicted through DNA testing and fighting for reforms to the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.

This year, the Innocence Project is marking its 30th anniversary.

Brown talks about how many people have been exonerated and some of the lessons she learned about New York’s criminal justice system over the last 30 years. With more than 300 people exonerated and countless innocent people still behind bars, Brown discusses why state Senator Zellnor Myrie’s Challenging Wrongful Convictions Act is so critical and why New York remains one of the easiest states to be wrongfully convicted.
