Korey Wise Innocence Project Staff Attorney

The Korey Wise Innocence Project (KWIP) at the University of Colorado Law School encourages applications for a Staff Attorney. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) recently provided KWIP with a list of 51 criminal cases where CBI analysts conducted hair microscopy (a forensic discipline discredited by DNA). KWIP subsequently applied for, and was awarded, a Department of Justice (DOJ) grant to fund a new Staff Attorney position to run a hair microscopy project. The Staff Attorney will supervise a review of the CBI hair microscopy cases and similar cases from other state agencies. This position will also have primary responsibility for these cases as they move through screening processes, DNA testing, and exoneration if warranted. The selected cases will be screened to determine whether inaccurate and unreliable expert testimony was admitted at trial (or whether the expert’s conclusions were used to secure a plea agreement), whether the hair microscopy evidence was material to the conviction, and whether new DNA testing could demonstrate actual innocence. As appropriate, this role will conduct investigations, negotiate or litigate for new DNA testing, and raise new-evidence claims in post-conviction litigation.

You can read the full article here.
