Widespread problems of criminal justice manifest themselves in the SBS realm. This chapter concentrates on a subset of problems with particular salience for SBS prosecutions and, more broadly, for science dependent prosecution. Suggested reforms discussed include allowing for pretrial discovery depositions of prosecution experts; strengthening judicial regulation of expert testimony; enhancing the effectiveness of post-conviction judicial review; creating conviction integrity units within prosecutors’ offices; and developing freestanding innocence commissions.
