Conviction Review Unit | The Brooklyn District Attorney's Office
"The Conviction Review Unit, established in 2014, is tasked with reviewing and thoroughly investigating convicted offenders’ claims of innocence. The unit is comprised of 10 experienced assistant district attorneys, as well as a team of detective investigators and legal support staff. The unit is jointly led by Professor Ronald Sullivan, Jr., of Harvard Law School, and Mark Hale, a career prosecutor with over 30-years-experience trying homicides and other serious offenses. The unit’s work is further reviewed by an independent team made up of three long-tenured attorneys: Bernard W. Nussbaum, Jennifer G. Rodgers, and Gary S. Villanueva. To date, the unit’s work has led to the release of 13 defendants wrongfully convicted of various serious crimes."
