The Center for Public Integrity and veteran investigative journalist Steve Weinberg are researching cases of prosecutorial misconduct that lead to wrongful convictions.
They would like to hear from anybody – prisoners, their families and friends, journalists, lawyers, expert and lay witnesses, jurors, medical examiners, police officers, judges – with evidence of prosecutorial misconduct.Steve Weinberg, of Columbia, Missouri, an author, is a former newspaper reporter and magazine staff writer.
Working with Steve Weinberg is Neil Gordon. Neil Gordon, a lawyer, is a research associate at the Center for Public Integrity.
Funding for the project comes from several sources, most prominently the Open Society Institute in New York.
The research will be disseminated by the Center for Public Integrity, possibly in the form of a book from a major publisher.
Steve Weinberg and Neil Gordon plan to name the names of prosecutors who cross the line, especially in jurisdictions where wrongful convictions have occurred repeatedly.
