Abstract:     
In a recent article in the Ohio Journal of Criminal Law Professors Richard Leo and Jon Gould criticize some of our research on false convictions. In this brief reply we dispute some of their methodological assertions, and point out that while Leo and Gould take issue in some detail with our cautious and generally pessimistic view of research in this area, they do not actually dispute any of our empirical conclusions.
