"It’s unlikely that West will ever be held accountable in any real way. In 2017, a federal appeals court ruled that he and other experts are protected by qualified immunity, even for grossly negligent testimony that sends an innocent person to prison. To even get in front of a jury, a wrongly convicted person must show a witness such as West knew his testimony was false when he gave it — an almost impossible standard."

"Every wrongful conviction case should be a book, because these are fantastic stories from a storytelling point of view because of the incredible suffering, the injustice, the wasted lives, the wasted time, the wasted money, the wasted everything that goes into a single wrongful conviction, while the real rapist, the real murderer goes free."
