The only real problem with the movie is that there is a mixture of cases where there is ACTUAL innocence and cases where there "innocence" is based on only a technicality which has reversed the conviction. In several of those cases so much time has passed that it is almost impossible to recreate a trial and those people are listed as exonerated.
