We are finding that the problems aren’t just about DNA because there are cases that involve wrongfully convicted inmates that doesn’t include DNA, which is misidentification, improper forensic science, government misconduct, and bad leveraging. The Government really doesn’t benefit in helping resolve this issue but it is a government issue non-the less.

When inmates come from a lower economical status, inmates don’t know that they have the right to get their voice heard. These inmates come from a background with little to no money, lower IQ status, and their families don’t have the money to support their case. Generate Possible Solutions: First we need to show the government the severity of how many people n the prison system are claiming innocence but still have no organization that is state funded to read their cases to reevaluate their case to be exonerated based off of DNA 2.
We need to have every state elect an official in each county that is designated to review wrongfully convicted inmates cases within a month of receiving their file or notice. 3.
