MI: Lawmakers rush to limit DNA proof

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread

To stop the rush of innocent prisoners from
being released after DNA evidence shows that
they didn't commit the crime, Michigan lawmakers
want a 5 year cap to appeals. It also would force
them to use a more rigid proof than what was used
to convict them in the first place.

Can't have those innocent prisoners getting out
after the State spent so much money getting them
in there in the first place :-
