Anatomy of a Miscarriage of Justice: The Wrongful Conviction of Peter J. Rose

By Susan Rutberg / Golden Gate University Law Review, on 1 January 2006

This Article examines one case in which students and lawyers from Golden Gate University’s Innocence Project won the exoneration of Peter J. Rose, a man who served nearly ten years of a twenty-seven year State Prison sentence for the rape and kidnap of a child before DNA proved his innocence. The analysis of this case focuses on how the conduct of two police detectives, the prosecutor and the defense attorney contributed to this miscarriage of justice.
