ABSTRACT
The article discusses the findings and recommendations found in the Final Report of the Task Force on Wrongful Convictions formed by the New York State Bar Association. The Task Force determined the criteria to be those of individuals whose New York convictions were eventually overturned by judicial or formal exoneration. The emergence of Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) testing in the mid- to late-1980s changed perceptions and the study of the problem of wrongful convictions.
