State Doc Pick of the Week : North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission

Share Button

There has been an increasing concern about how the justice system operates in the United States.

There has been a trend in 721px-NorthCarolina-StateSeal.svgrecent years of people being exonerated after having their cases re-examined. In North Carolina, the State Judicial Council puts out an annual report to the General Assembly where they evaluate post-conviction claims of actual innocence.

In these reports, one can see the process of how North Carolina, neutrally, investigates into cases to evaluate if the individual is actually innocent.

Depending on the General Assembly session, these reports are divided into short sessions and regular/long sessions. They are separated on our digital collection website and you can view the short session reports here, and the regular/long session reports, here. And as always you can view, save, download, and print the documents as you please.
