Reuters: "US Supreme Court shows indifference to wrongful convictions"

"The U.S. Supreme Court held last week that a federal prisoner cannot challenge a sentence even if subsequent rulings show that courts misinterpreted the law and convicted the person for conduct that wasn’t actually a crime.

The June 22 ruling is the latest in a series of recent decisions by the court’s conservative majority that have systematically closed off legal avenues to challenge convictions, even for innocent people facing death sentences."
