New Non-DNA Evidence & Changes in Science in Connecticut

In 2018, Connecticut passed a law that allows a person to introduce new non-DNA evidence of innocence anytime after conviction, removing the previous three-year time limit. New non-DNA evidence may include scientific advancements, new guidelines, or expert recantations that undermine forensic evidence used in a conviction. Effective: October 2018.

Read the statute.
