The Case for Innocence (2000)
Producer: WGBH Educational Foundation
"More than 70 inmates accused of rape and murder have been freed because DNA tests proved their innocence in a way tha evidence and eyewitness accounts never could. Why then are prosecutors, courts and even governors reluctant to use this scientific test? Frontline examines the cases of those whose protestations of innocence could be confirmed by DNA testing, but who may remain imprisioned forever." [description from the cassette box] PBS has a website for this program at http://www.pbs.org.
