Description

 

Dr. Reena Roy, professor emeritus of PSU’s forensic science program, will walk us through the complexities of a 1985 homicide case in Nebraska, where five individuals confessed to a heinous crime--which none of them had committed. She will demonstrate how science, justice, and conflict of interest play major roles in our criminal justice system. Reena played a major role in this case analyzing the evidence; however she was not asked to testify at trial until 2016.

Due to the violent subject matter, this program is recommended for adults.
