Linda Starr was quoted in Mercury News and Santa Cruz Sentinel articles about the risks and problems with Proposition 66, which was passed by California voters in 2016 and which would speed up executions in the state.

“Proposition 66 is ill-advised, will not promote justice in our state, and comes with a huge risk that an innocent person could be convicted and executed,” said Linda Starr, legal director of the Northern California Innocence Project, a clinical program at Santa Clara University’s law school that works to exonerate those it believes were wrongfully convicted.
