ASU News

Valena Beety is a professor at Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law and the deputy director of the college’s Academy for Justice. She is looking more deeply at how we can transform our criminal legal system and reexamine what we see as wrongful convictions. She notes that more people are wrongfully convicted and in prison than those we can prove are factually innocent because the standard is incredibly high to prove innocence.
