Chris Fabricant, the Innocence Project’s Director of Strategic Litigation and author of Junk Science and the American Criminal Justice System; and Kristin Henning, criminal justice advocate and author of The Rage of Innocence: How America Criminalizes Black Youth discuss the American criminal justice system with Montclair State University Associate Professor of Justice Studies, Dr. Jason Williams.
