IDRA webinar: Jessica Henry - Smoke but no Fire
Prof. Henry, a former public defender turned professor, will discuss her new book Smoke but No Fire: Convicting the Innocent of Crimes that Never Happened. Her book describes ‘no-crime wrongful convictions.’ As she explains: ‘A suicide is mislabeled a homicide. An accidental fire is mislabeled an arson. Corrupt police plant drugs on an innocent suspect. A false allegation of assault is invented to resolve a custody dispute. With this book, former New York City public defender Jessica S. Henry sheds essential light on a deeply flawed criminal justice system that allows—even encourages—these convictions to regularly occur.’
