NYSBA Passes Recommended Criminal Justice Reforms, Including Suggested DA Conviction-Review Units

By Jason Grant

The New York Law Journal quoted Immediate Past President Michael Miller and Task Force on Wrongful Convictions chair Hon. Barry Kamins on the State Bar’s recommended criminal justice reforms to prevent wrongful convictions.

Other recommendations include permitting a person who has pleaded guilty to a crime to be able to move to vacate his or her conviction based on newly discovered, innocence-establishing evidence other than DNA, which is already allowed as the basis for such motions.
