Liebman and the Columbia DeLuna Project's The Wrong Carlos: Anatomy of a Wrongful Execution: The Wrong Carlos calls into question the United States justice system and its ability to impose the death penalty with impartiality and certainty through an in-depth examination of an obscure capital murder case from the 1980s. In Corpus Christi, Texas, a man named Carlos DeLuna was executed for the murder of Wanda Vargas Lopez, while a man who looked just like him, Carlos Hernandez, escaped conviction for killing her and others. Columbia Law School professor James S. Liebman and his team from the Columbia DeLuna Project delve into this case of mistaken identity to study how factors such as race, poverty, and reliance upon eyewitness testimony can contribute to erroneous death penalty convictions. In a country where capital punishment remains controversial, The Wrong Carlos asks its readers to consider whether irreversible conviction at the hands of a flawed system is the type of justice Americans want to see served. The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.
