Published: July 20, 2015
The National Institute of Justice awards Kirk Bloodsworth Post-Conviction DNA Testing Program grants to states trying to defray the costs associated with post-conviction DNA testing of forcible rape, murder, and non-negligent manslaughter cases in which actual innocence might be demonstrated. Program funds may be used to review such post-conviction cases and to locate and analyze biological evidence associated with these cases.
