Amen

Bestselling novelist John Grisham's first non-fiction book, The Innocent Man, tells the story of a wrongful conviction based upon the false testimony by a jailhouse snitch. The accused was exonerated 11 years later based on DNA evidence. Grisham recently said: "Wrongful convictions occur every month in every state in this country, and the reasons are all varied and all the same - bad police work, junk science, faulty eyewitness identifications, bad defense lawyers, lazy prosecutors, arrogant prosecutors."
