Watch New National Institute of Justice Video on Wrongful Conviction

NIJ has released Just Wrong: The Aftermath of Wrongful Convictions, from Crime Victims to Exonerees to raise awareness about the scope of consequences stemming from wrongful convictions. 

The documentary chronicles the experiences of six individuals — three exonerees who spent decades in prison for crimes they did not commit and three crime victims or survivors whose lives were impacted by a wrongful conviction. Sharing these stories will help better understand the challenges faced in order to minimize and prevent these miscarriages of justice and support the specialized needs of the exonerated and original victims and survivors.

You can watch and share Just Wrong at; get background on the documentary at; and read a new NIJ Journal article about the role of forensic science in wrongful convictions and DNA exonerations at
