Reviews

"A chilling chronicle of what can happen when the criminal justice system goes awry." --Publishers Weekly "Innocent is an excellent recommendation to make the next time someone questions the need for further criminal justice reform." --New York Law Journal "This should be required reading for everyone who gives a damn about justice in this country." --Mickey Sherman, CBS News legal analyst "Christianson succeeds in raising reasonable doubts and questions about the integrity of our criminal justice system. Written with perceptiveness and sympathy for the plight of the wrongly convicted, [Innocent] is an excellent addition to the literature on miscarriages of justice." --Justicia
