Faculty Director, Lois and Richard Rosenthal Institute for Justice, Ohio Innocence Project

Photo of Professor Godsey Mark presented Reformulating the Miranda Warnings in Light of Contemporary Law and Understandings, 90 Minn. L. Rev. ___ (forthcoming 2006) at Ohio State. The paper was the fifth most downloaded criminal law paper on SSRN during September.

Mark and his students with the Ohio Innocence Project, along with Akron attorney Jana DeLoach and Squire, Sanders & Dempsey, filed a motion in the case of Clarence Elkins. The motion seeks Elkins’ release based on DNA evidence which not only exonerates him of the rapes and murder for which he was convicted, but demonstrates that another man—a convicted rapist—committed the crimes. Mark was quoted about the case in the Akron Beacon Journal, Cincinnati Enquirer and Cleveland Plain Dealer, and appeared on television news across the state.

CrimProf Blog, which Mark co-edits with Arizona professor Jack Chin, received its 200,000th visitor in September.
