Attorney Michael S. Pascazi Fights for Use of DNA Testing to Exonerate Man Convicted of 1993 Murder
Michael S. Pascazi, Esq., has petitioned the N.Y.S. Supreme Court, Kings County (Brooklyn) to overturn, with the aid of DNA testing, Shaliq Peterson’s 1995 conviction for second degree murder. To date 251 individuals have been exonerated from wrongful convictions through the use of DNA testing. DNA testing was not widely used in New York State courts in the mid 90’s. Today it is commonplace. It can be used to establish guilt as well as innocence.
