              Assumed Guilty: True Stories of People Found Guilty of Crimes They Did Not Commit (previously published as Executed Unjustly) This book recounts the true stories of people who were accused, convicted and executed for crimes. Some of them were later officially exonerated for the c...rime and for others the preponderance of evidence today shows they were executed wrongfully, though never officially found innocent. The cases occurred in the United States and it will be shown that our Judicial System doesn't always result in a fair decision. It seems unimaginable to most of us that totally innocent people would actually lose their lives due to fear, social inequality, legal ineptitude and downright criminal acts by those who promised to uphold the law. Some of the cases included are: Josefa Rodriguez - the only woman legally hanged in Texas, Joe Arridy - a man with the mind of a six year old, Leo Alexander Jones - a series of blunders and errors signed his death warrant, and Carlos DeLuna - a case of mistaken identity. Be prepared to be shocked at the details of these cases and the tragic reasons and ways the innocent died.
