Brandon L. Garrett, author of "Convicting the Innocent: Where Criminal Prosecutions Go Wrong," and Professor at the University of Virginia Law School, talks about the cases of 250 people who were exonerated by DNA evidence after spending an average of 13 years in prison, including 17 who were on Death Row. Garrett reveals that these wrongful convictions were not exceptions but the result of practices that the courts rely on every day.
