Rate this:
Here, in this unique and compulsively readable encyclopedia for all true-crime buffs, you will find all the famously, or infamously, "innocent"-from Mary, Queen of Scots, to Alfred Dreyfus, from Leo Frank to the Scottsboro Boys, from Dr. Sam Sheppard to Anthony Porter, from Joan of Arc to Lindy Chamberlain, as well as hundreds of other cases. Unequalled in depth and breadth of coverage, "I Am Innocent!" graphically details by category-including such as perjury, railroading, framing, suppression of evidence, police and prosecutorial coercion, mistaken identity, and prejudicial publicity-how wrongly convicted persons were sentenced to prison...or the gallows. Over five hundred cases are included, as well as a comprehensive glossary of legal and law enforcement terms; an extensive list of movies based on wrongly convicted individuals; a complete bibliography; and a cross-referenced index.
