Summary:
Long regarded as the world's most enlightened legal system, American justice is based on the fundamental principle that a person accused of a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. But Gerald Lefcourt, president-elect of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, believes that innocent people get convicted more often today than ever before. FALSELY ACCUSED shows how eyewitness testimony, which is given so much weight by juries, often leads to tragic mistakes. Examine two cases in which eyewitness accounts led to the conviction of innocent people. Look at the role of the media in cases of Richard Jewell, Clayton Harwig and Virginia McMartin. Are the innocent convicted in the press long before the jury has a chance to hear their case? And is it possible to truly recover from false accusations?
