Watson tells how TrueAllele helped innocent men

In July, Indiana University Frances Watson met with Cybergenetics in Pittsburgh. The McKinney Law School professor talked about the impact of TrueAllele exoneration on the lives of exonerees and their families.

"You ended human suffering," said Watson in a short video, speaking of DNA exoneree Roosevelt Glenn and his dying mother. "The world knows he's innocent. Mrs. Glenn, when she goes soon, she will have the peace that she deserves."

Nonprofit to honor Indiana Law Professor Watson

Professor Frances Watson's dedication to justice, use of scientific technology, and pro bono efforts exemplify the mission of Justice Through Science. JTS will recognize her as the Justice Award honoree honoree at its CLE conference. Professor Watson will be talking that morning about "The Legal Ethics of Wrongful Conviction."

The mission of the nonprofit JTS public charity is bringing better science into criminal justice through forensic education and public service.
