Junk Science and the American Criminal Justice System

Join the Quattrone Center for the Fair Administration of Justice for a book talk with author Chris Fabricant, Innocence Project’s Director of Strategic Litigation joined by Marissa Bluestine, Assistant Director of the Quattrone Center and Maria Cuellar, Assistant Professor of Criminology and Assistant Professor of Statistics and Data Science at the University of Pennsylvania. From CSI to forensic files to the celebrated reputation of the FBI crime lab, forensic scientists have long been mythologized in American popular culture as infallible crime solvers. Juries put their faith in “expert witnesses” and innocent people have been executed as a result. Innocent people are on death row today, condemned by junk science. Lunch will be served. This event is open to University of Pennsylvania faculty, staff and students. Penn Law requires attendees to show a green PennOpen Pass and Penn ID when entering the building.

Interrogating Without Coercion: How police and policymakers are reforming interrogations to eliminate coercion and prevent false confessions

Coerced confessions are a blight on the criminal justice system. Coercive and unskilled police interrogations focused on obtaining a confession often lead to false confessions and fail to uncover reliable information.  Watch the recording here.

Anatomy of a Trial: The Prosecution of Derek Chauvin

The Quattrone Center for the Fair Administration of Justice invites you to a panel discussion analyzing the trial of Derek Chauvin. The murder of George Floyd and the subsequent trial of Derek Chauvin drew immediate national attention and sparked a new urgency on reform efforts in police use of force and accountability. While many discussions examined the implications of the trial in the broad context of social justice, the practical issues surrounding the prosecution of police officers warrant further exploration.  Watch the recording here

Rescuing 911:  Opportunities for Reform in Police Dispatch

Amid ongoing calls for reform to address systemic racism in our communities, our 911 operators continue to receive about 500,000 calls each day. These operators are the first of our first responders. The information they gather, what they transmit, and the way they transmit it can have a meaningful impact on how police respond to calls for help from our communities. And as the recent killing of Walter Wallace Jr. in Philadelphia shows, the manner in which police get dispatched to an encounter with a community member can critically shape how it ends.

Criminal Justice Reform and Forensics: The Importance of Evidence

In the wake of the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless others, calls for widespread reform of America’s criminal justice system have reached a deafening pitch. Understandably, much of the conversation has focused on policing. But the criminal justice system encompasses much more than just law enforcement. As the nation once again turns its attention to the systemic biases in the system and how to fix it, we will discuss how to improve the quality of one part of the system that must be objective: physical evidence in criminal cases.

Coming Home After Wrongful Conviction: Quattrone Center Exoneree Fellow Panel Discussion

The nightmare of wrongful conviction often does not end upon one’s return to freedom.  Men and women who have spent years, often decades, in prison now must forge a life for themselves without basic skills and support that most of us take for granted – an employment history to establish credit, job training, housing, and other basic needs can be hard to obtain.  Many states have no compensation statutes to support those who have been wrongfully convicted, and the process of securing funds in those states who do have compensation can take years and requires overcoming new legal hurdles.  And the emotional challenges from the trauma of a wrongful conviction can linger for years.

Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America

In recent years, America’s criminal justice system has become the subject of an increasingly urgent debate. Critics have assailed the rise of mass incarceration, emphasizing its disproportionate impact on people of color. As James Forman, Jr., points out, however, the war on crime that began in the 1970s was supported by many African American leaders in the nation’s urban centers. In Locking Up Our Own, he seeks to understand why.

The emergence of “Shaken Baby Syndrome” presents an object lesson in the dangers that lie at the intersection of science and criminal law. As often occurs in the context of scientific knowledge, understandings of SBS have evolved. We now know that the diagnostic triad — the three neurological symptoms once equated with guilt — does not itself prove beyond a reasonable doubt that an infant was abused nor that the last person with the baby was responsible for the baby’s condition. Nevertheless, our legal system has failed to absorb this new consensus.
