Wrongful Convictions

Fighting a Wrongful Conviction in NYC?

New York City Criminal Defense Lawyer

One of the most unsettling occurrences in criminal law is the discovery that a person was convicted and sent to prison when he or she was actually innocent and/or was subjected to gross violations of their Constitutional rights. This is referred to as a "wrongful conviction." Unfortunately, wrongful convictions occur more often than many people realize. Brooklyn has seen an ongoing crisis of such convictions, with many people being released from prison after spending years behind bars for crimes of which they never should have been convicted. In order to correct unjust convictions, many prosecutors' offices have created special mechanisms for reviewing claims of innocence and of convictions that have violated Constitutional rights.

If you believe that you or a loved one was wrongfully convicted, you can turn to the Law Office of Mark A. Bederow, P.C. for help. Mr. Bederow can thoroughly re-investigate your case in order to determine if your conviction should be overturned or vacated because of actual innocence, or because of gross deprivation of your Constitutional rights.
