The Progressive Forum presents Barry Scheck


Texas leads the nation in wrongful convictions. And Barry Scheck has said, "For years, Houston has been ground zero in the national epidemic of faulty forensic science." Scheck helped pioneer the use of DNA in the court room. He co-founded the Innocence Project, New York City, which is a national litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerate the wrongly convicted and reform the criminal justice system. Scheck is also a partner in the law firm Neufeld, Scheck & Brustin, which is frequently retained by victims of police brutality. He is the author of Actual Innocence: When Justice Goes Wrong and How To Make It Right (2003).

Scheck will sign books and greet fans at the end of the evening in the grand foyer.
