Tribble Exonerated After Wrongful Conviction Involving Faulty Forensic Evidence

On December 14, seven months after his murder conviction was overturned because of faulty forensic evidence, a judge formally exonerated Santae Tribble. The ruling makes him the second DC man this year to be exonerated after serving a lengthy prison term because of unreliable FBI microscopic hair analysis. Earlier this year, TCP’s Board of Directors released a statement expressing their dismay over cases such as this and the untold number of people unjustly facing criminal prosecution, languishing in prison, and living under the cloud of a criminal conviction because of defective forensic evidence and Brady violations. The statement, and a concurrent letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, also outlined important reforms necessary to ensure the fairness and accuracy of our criminal justice system.
