TALLAHASSEE 11/14/2011 -- A panel including former Florida Supreme Court Justice Raoul Cantero, lawyers and legislators will focus on those issues Monday at Florida State University's law school in Tallahassee.

The panel also will include Florida State President Emeritus Talbot "Sandy" D'Alemberte.

Also a former American Bar Association president, D'Alemberte, led efforts to create the Florida Innocence Commission.

The panel is examining wrongful convictions and making recommendations on how to prevent them in the future.

The nonprofit Death Penalty Information Center says 23 death row inmates have been exonerated in Florida. That's more than any other
state.
