Summary
"In this unprecedented view from the trenches, prosecutor turned champion for the innocent Mark Godsey takes us inside the frailties of the human mind as they unfold in real-world wrongful convictions. Drawing upon both psychological research and shocking--yet true--stories from his own career, Godsey shares how innate psychological flaws and the "tough on crime" political environment can cause investigations to go awry, leading to the conviction of innocent people. He not only sheds light on unintentional yet routine injustices but also recommends structural and procedural changes to restore justice to the criminal justice system."--Provided by publisher
