PUBLISHER'S NOTE: Countdown: Innocence Project 'Guilty Plea Problem' campaign begins at noon today: January 23, 2017; Access the countdown at the link below. This promises to be a very important project. The Innocense Project says"95% of felony convictions are obtained through guilty pleas. Innocent people are being forced to plead guilty. Let's fix this." As I have shown in the current series of posts on guilty pleas, there is clearly a guilty plea problem in the U.S.A. and Canada (and perhaps other countries) which all too often results in conviction of the innocent. Innocent people must never be forced to plead guilty. The Innocence Project says 'Let's fix it." I say to the Innocence Project 'show us how.' Noon today!

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: I am monitoring this case/issue. Keep your eye on the Charles Smith Blog for reports on developments. The Toronto Star, my previous employer for more than twenty incredible years, has put considerable effort into exposing the harm caused by Dr. Charles Smith and his protectors - and into pushing for reform of Ontario's forensic pediatric pathology system. The Star has a "topic" section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith. It can be found at: http://www.thestar.com/topic/
