ProPublica/New York Times Investigates Validity of ITX Client's Conviction
Pamela Colloff, in a partnership between ProPublica and The New York Times Magazine, recently published an extensive two-part exposé on the case of ITX client Joe Bryan. Thirty-three years ago, Joe's wife was murdered. Police eventually came to believe Joe had done it, even though he was over one hundred miles away at the time - at a conference surrounded by work colleagues.
The most damaging evidence against Joe was bloodstain analysis linking him to the crime. Science can be difficult to ignore, and Joe was found guilty despite his continued claims of innocence. He was sentenced to 99 years in prison, where he has remained for almost thirty years.
In this extensive, two-part series Pamela Colloff examines the crime, conviction, and junk science underlying Joe's conviction.
Joe is represented by long-time ITX pro bono attorney Walter Reeves.
