Coincidental to my Cato piece on "Rightful Convictions," I was invited by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on March 21st. The subject was “Justice for All: Convicting the Guilty and Exonerating the Innocent.” Testifying also were the DA of Dallas County, Texas, Craig Watkins; and Thomas Haynesworth of Richmond, VA. Mr. Haynesworth was wrongfully convicted of rape in and spent 27 years in prison. He was truly exonerated by a DNA test that was not available until recently.
