In an article published today on Slate.com, writer and attorney Lara Bazelon explores meaningful efforts that are being made to help the people most affected by wrongful convictions—exonerees and victims of crime who contributed to sending the wrong people to prison—to cope and heal.
As anyone who has heard a story of wrongful conviction knows, the road to recovery can be a long one not only for exonerees, but also for the victims; they can suffer first from the crime and again when they learn that the wrong person was punished and the perpetrator remained free. Sadly, there are few resources available to help either party deal with the challenges of coming to terms with a wrongful conviction. To fill the void, a select group of organizations geared at addressing problems within the criminal justice system have started unique initiatives based on principles of restorative justice to foster healing for both exonerees and victims.
