Bad Science presents the Innocence Project
Tuesday, 3/23/2010 6:30 PM (EST)
Join moderator Radley Balko as he and a distinguished panel of experts in forensic science and criminal justice reform discuss the case of Cameron Todd Willingham, who was executed by the state of Texas six years ago based on disproved forensic evidence. Willingham was convicted in 1992 of murdering his three daughters in a house fire that the state -- using techniques and assumptions no longer recognized as scientifically valid – determined was arson. Despite advances that demonstrated the case against him was unsound and that the fire could not even be proven to have been arson at all, Texas executed Willingham in 2004.
