  It's the last Legal Brief of the month, so you know what that means! That's right, Justine and Amanda are telling the stories of the people who were added to the National Registry of Exonerations.

 " The National Registry of Exonerations is a project of the Newkirk Center for Science & Society at University of California Irvine, the University of Michigan Law School and Michigan State University College of Law. It was founded in 2012 in conjunction with the Center on Wrongful Convictions at Northwestern University School of Law. The Registry provides detailed information about every known exoneration in the United States since 1989—cases in which a person was wrongly convicted of a crime and later cleared of all the charges based on new evidence of innocence. The Registry also maintains a more limited database of known exonerations prior to 1989."

We can not thank them enough for all their hard work compiling all the stories of the almost 3,000 exonerees.
