Show #225 | Guest: Lara Bazelon - Rectify: The Power of Restorative Justice after Wrongful Conviction | Show Summary: As the truism goes, everyone behind bars is innocent - if you listen to them. The problem is a lot of them are. Our justice system is often unjust; people are convicted by a system mired in racism, classism, and systemic faults. Lara Bazelon is a law professor, author, and contributing writer for Slate. Her op-eds and essays have also been published in the New York Times, Washington Post, and Politico, among other media outlets. Her book, Rectify: The Power of Restorative Justice After Wrongful Conviction, was recently published by Beacon Press. Her article, Innocence Deniers: Prosecutors who have refused to admit wrongful convictions was published last January in Slate.
