The Causes of Wrongful Conviction
By Paul Craig Roberts
This article appeared in the Spring 2003 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Correcting the problem of wrongful conviction will require both changing the incentives that police and prosecutors face and resurrecting the belief that the function of justice is to find the truth. Procedural and evidentiary reforms would reduce the rate of wrongful conviction, but such reforms alone cannot remedy the inroads that a Benthamite view of law has made on the Blackstonian view.
