This chapter summarizes the findings from the various chapters and examines recommendations from other authors to outline directions for reform and further research. The value of various terms and concepts—variable distribution of wrongful conviction risk, “black box” investigation, the “continuum of intentionality,” victim status paths, moral outrage, and moral correction—in preventing and correcting wrongful conviction and for prospective research is presented. Obstacles faced in preventing and reducing wrongful conviction are also discussed. The chapter focuses on identifying common concerns and obstacles to reform that have been identified in the literature. It considers how the investigation of wrongful conviction in sexual assault, presented in this volume, contributes to the literature on reducing and preventing the conviction of innocents.
