Tell Congress: No More State Sponsored Executions Based on Junk Science

Was an innocent man executed in 2004 at the hands of the Texas criminal justice system? And if he was, could the same situation be playing out across the country? The chances are good considering the lack of adherence to any sort of nationally accepted scientific standard when it comes to forensic criminal investigations. Numerous activists, attorneys, and scientific organizations are pushing Congress to establish a federal body responsible for the regulation of forensic sciences.
