BROOKLYN, N.Y., June 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With new cases popping up every day, courtrooms in the United States are now facing backlash for wrongful convictions and wrongful imprisonment suits. Since new DNA testing technology has been implemented, more inmates are reaching out for their last attempt to prove their innocence. The Innocent Project, a New York group highly dedicated to exonerating those who were wrongly convicted states, "There have been 316 post-conviction DNA exonerations in the United States" while other inmates are still calling out for help.
Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, is at the forefront of assisting victims upon release with needed lawsuit cash advances to get their lives back in order. Legal-Bay is following the work of the Innocent Project and feels these litigations should be expedited so the wrongfully convicted inmates can be released quicker. The main causes of wrongful imprisonment to date are due to: invalidated and improper forensic DNA science, eyewitness misidentifications, false confessions, false incriminating statements, prosecutorial misconduct, and improper use of informants.
While supporting the Innocent Project, Legal-Bay is paying close attention to many cases in NY, including cases up for review by detective Louis Scarcella. Scarcella, an ex-NYPD detective out of Brooklyn, has been the target of countless claims of wrongful conviction and false imprisonment cases. Most notably, David Ranta's case where he was wrongly sentenced and spent 20 years behind bars prior to his release last year. Ranta and his attorney recently settled a portion of their wrongful imprisonment case for a sum of $6.4MM, according to the NY Daily News after filing a bombastic $150MM lawsuit against New York City.
New York's Huffington post quotes authorities will "review about 50 cases worked on by detective Louis Scarcella".
Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations, commented on the company's efforts to aid the wrongfully convicted, "It is without question that our company has a strong dedication to assisting these victims at a time when they are just trying to integrate back into society. Our firm understands their needs while they try to find meaningful employment again and a place to live. Even though many of the cases may be dragged through the court for years, we are committed to providing the necessary cash advances needed for these victims to live their lives in dignity once and for all."
Legal-Bay is a national lawsuit settlement funding company that has seen a spike in wrongful imprisonment, police brutality, and prison injury cases in states such as: California, Florida, New Jersey, Texas, Louisiana, District of Columbia D.C., and Georgia; however the most egregious cases seem to be emanating out of New York's boroughs.
