Review of 14,000 Minnesota criminal convictions finds no exonerations

 


A review of more than 14,000 criminal convictions across Minnesota using new DNA technology did not reveal a single wrongful conviction.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman, whose office revealed the results Wednesday, led the federally funded review of 18 years of criminal convictions to see if current DNA testing could lead to any exonerations.

“Frankly, I wasn’t sure the results would be this good,” Freeman said.
