Forensics: Innocence Project
deadline: Friday, February 26, 2016
As we learn about investigations in this course, it is important to consider the outcomes of how the evidence we collect and analyze will eventually be used. Science has man real-world applications, and the Innocence Project uses scientific evidence to help exonerate people who have been wrongfully convicted.
Your poster presentation should cover all pertinent details regarding an exoneree from the Innocence Project website.
URL at which to start: http://www.innocenceproject.org/cases-false-imprisionment or see Moodle (http://atomeagle.com)
After you gather all the information possible from that page, you may wish to search for more information online.
Poster Presentation: You will have some class time to research an exoneree and to create a Poster or Digital Presentation. Additional work may need to be done at home, depending on your use of class time.
