The latest episode of All Things Judicial features part one of a three-part series on the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission. Part one is hosted by Lindsey Guice Smith, Executive Director of the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission, and the guests are commissioners Johnson Britt, Rick Glazier, and John Boswell. This episode examines the purpose of the Commission, gives an overview of its structure, and commissioners share why they volunteered for their roles and detail the most interesting cases of their tenures. Parts two and three will be released in August and September and will focus on the Commission’s victim services program and the Commission staff.
“Despite our best efforts, mistakes are made. There has to be a system that can correct these mistakes because if there isn’t, everybody loses,” Commissioner Boswell said on the podcast. “I wish everyone understood the importance of the Commission and all the factors that come into play.”
