VIDEO: Wrongful convictions of women in the U.S. produced by the Innocence Project on the occasion of Women's History Month.

GIST: Innocence Project Executive Director  Maddy DeLone discusses some of the distinct factors that contribute to the wrongful conviction of women in the U.S to the backdrop of some significant statistics: 63% of the  female exoneration cases involved a woman convicted of a crime that never occurred;  159 women in the U.S. were exonerated since 1989; 337 people were exonerated by DNA around the U.S. 50% of the female exonerees have  been convicted of physically harming, or killing a family member, loved one,  or child in their care;  37% of women exonerated because their convictions used false or misleading forensic evidence.

The Star has a "topic" section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith. It can be found at:
