Prosecution complex: America's race to convict and its impact on the innocent.

Combining his courtoom experience and his role as a teacher and scholar in the classroom, Daniel Medwed shows how prosecutors are asked play a double role of locking up criminals and protecting the rights of defendants, creating an institutional "prosecution complex" that animates how district attorneys' offices treat potentially innocent defendants at all stages of the process - and that can cause prosecutors to aid in the conviction of the innocent.
