Dear Gov. Brown,
I urge you to sign SB 569 and SB 618 into law. These are two simple and important steps toward justice in California. SB 569 would require the videotaping of interrogations of juveniles charged with homicide, improve criminal investigation techniques, reduce the likelihood of wrongful conviction, and provide strong evidence for convicting the guilty. The reforms within SB 618 will streamline the process for exonerees to gain access to compensation for time spent incarcerated due to their wrongful conviction. Both measures will make our criminal justice system more fair, efficient, and cost-effective.
With your support, we can help protect the innocent and make sure that those who have been wrongfully convicted get fair access to compensation.
Please sign SB 569 and SB 618 into law.
