The implementation of a Conviction Integrity Unit within the Jackson County Mo. Prosecutors office would allow convicted offenders with legitimate post conviction claims of innocence to have their cases reviewed and reinvestigated which would help to identify wrongful convictions. This type of unit could help defendants seeking exoneration avert years of long litigation through cooperation. The Conviction Integrity Unit would also serve to safeguard the public and to fulfill the prosecuting officials ethical duty to seek justice in every case. It is very important for Prosecutor and District Attrorney offices to implement a Conviction Integrity Unit. It can save the defendant from years of enduring incarceration as well as it can save the States and Counties from paying out monies owed to the defendant as a result of the wrongful conviction. A Innocnece Comission is needed to govern the affairs of the Conviction Integity Unit.
