DescriptionAfrican Americans are only 13% of the American population but make up a majority of innocent defendants wrongfully convicted of crimes and later exonerated. This racial disparity is evident in all major crime categories, but this report examines it in the context of the three types of crime that produce the largest numbers of exonerations: murder, sexual assault, and drug crimes.
