The Injustice of a Wrongful Conviction

A documentary on a man currently serving a life sentence for the 2005 murder of a woman has led to about half a million petitions for the man's release based on the belief that he is innocent of the crime. Perhaps part of what makes this particular story so captivating to many people is the fact that the man previously served 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Regardless of where a person viewing the documentary stands on the man's innocence, the case raises the question of what to do when an innocent person is put in prison for a crime he or she did not commit, and what it truly means to be innocent until proven guilty.

The Effect of Time on a Sexual Assault Accusation

The recent charging of a prominent celebrity for sexual assault in Pennsylvania stemming from an incident that was claimed to have occurred in 2004 has raised questions regarding the statute of limitations for such a crime, not only in Pennsylvania, but around the country. The statute of limitations for charging a person with a crime is the time within which a prosecutor may charge a person for a crime before being barred under the law. In the Pennsylvania case, the statute of limitation was supposed to expire in January 2016.
