DA has Problems With Report
A new study shows that Wisconsin has the nation's eighth highest rate of wrongful criminal convictions but La Crosse County D.A., Tim Gruenke, has some issues with that report.
The Center for Wrongful Convictions at Northwestern University counted 21 Wisconsinites who were exonerated since 1989. The report said Wisconsin's wrongful convictions were 30 percent higher than the national average. Illinois had the most, with 101.
