LOS ANGELES: ‘ Creating Office Dedicated to Examining Wrongful Convictions Claims ‘

#AceWorldNews – USA:April.23: The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office is creating a unit dedicated to examining wrongful-conviction claims.

Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey is asking county supervisors for nearly $1 million to fund the new team, which would include three prosecutors, an investigator and a paralegal.

With the move, the county joins a small but growing number of prosecutorial agencies across the country that are devoting resources to identify innocent prisoners.
