In 1985 Harold and Thelma Swain were murdered in their church. At the time, witnesses gave conflicting descriptions of the perpetrator. More than 15 years later, after a tainted identification process, several eyewitnesses testified that GIP client Dennis Perry was the perpetrator, but he was several hundred miles away when the crime occurred.

Eyewitness misidentification is one of the most common factors in known cases of wrongful conviction.

Tonight Undisclosed Podcast will release the first episode of a new season focusing on the case of GIP client Dennis Perry.

Perry was arrested in 2000 for a double murder that occurred fifteen years earlier, in 1985. He was hundreds of miles away when the crime took place, and was cleared during the original investigation by the GBI. DNA evidence collected from the scene and tested before trial excluded Perry. He was convicted based on inconsistent testimony from eyewitnesses and incentivized informants. He has been in prison for more than 15 years. He has always maintained his innocence. You can learn more about the case at our website, and listen to the first episode tonight.

Existing facial recognition software hasn't been exposed to enough images of people of color to be confidently relied upon to identify them. Should law enforcement be able to use it given what we know about mistaken identification as a leading cause of wrongful convictions?

A Boston jailhouse just held a political debate between candidates vying for District Attorney. What a fantastic way to increase transparency and hold prosecutors accountable! Many thanks to ACLU for this groundbreaking event.

For years AL sheriffs have been allowed to pocket leftover funds from their food budgets, creating an incentive to underfeed inmates.

Yesterday Gov. Ivey announced a halt to this practice, but @southerncenter reports the measure only effects 4% of funds. https://t.co/MKDsQq9zk8 https://t.co/qGVVQdF6cO
