The Death Penalty Information Center’s (DPIC) new Special Report: The Innocence Epidemic provides in-depth analysis regarding the facts of wrongful convictions in capital cases. With the release of this report last month, DPIC has added 11 individuals to its list of individuals exonerated from death row. Of the 185 exonerations nationwide, 16 involve cases in Texas. The report also updates a key death penalty stat: for every eight people executed in the United States, one individual sentenced to death is exonerated.
In this edition of our monthly newsletter, you’ll find information on three federal executions scheduled for next week, as well as an execution set in Texas on January 21. Also, Anthony Graves reflects on 10 years of freedom since his exoneration and Alfred Dewayne Brown finally will be compensated by the State of Texas for his wrongful incarceration and decade on death row.
