Year 13, Book 73

73. Bloodsworth: The True Story of the First Death Row Inmate Exonerated by DNA by Tim Junkin

As the title indicates this book is the story of Kirk Bloodsworth who was the first person to get off death row due to DNA evidence. It’s a somewhat maddening story because you can see all the places along the way that the criminal justice system failed and led to him being on death row when he was completely innocent. It’s a really good book even though reading it might make you kind of crazy. I give it an 8 out of 10.
