Reno Speaks Out for DNA Testing

Janet Reno is speaking out in favor of DNA testing.

The former Attorney General will be participating in a panel discussion on the death penalty at the University of Iowa on Sunday, January 22.

Iowa is one of 12 states in the U.S. that does not have a death penalty.

Reno urged lawmakers to embrace DNA testing in order to prevent wrongful convictions.

"Once you carry out the death penalty, you can't take it back." said Reno.
