The November meeting will feature a presentation by Lindsay Herf, Executive Director of the Arizona Justice Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to exonerating the innocent and correcting cases of manifest injustice in Arizona.

Lindsay Herf is the Executive Director for the Arizona Justice Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to exonerating the innocent and correcting cases of manifest injustice in Arizona. 

 Lindsay developed an interest for criminal post-conviction relief work while in law school, where she was a clinic student for the California Innocence Project. 

 Lindsay’s professional career over the past decade has focused on litigating post-conviction innocence cases and studying the causes of wrongful convictions.  Lindsay came to the Arizona Justice Project initially to work on cases where DNA evidence could be tested and resolve a claim of innocence. The Justice Project, in collaboration with the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, ultimately uncovered an innocent individual when, in 2010, DNA testing proved he did not commit the crime.  He was the third individual in Arizona to be exonerated with the help of advanced DNA testing. 

 From 2013 to 2015, Lindsay went to Washington D.C. to work on the FBI Hair Microscopy Review with partners from the Innocence Project, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the U.S. Department of Justice.  That review has led to additional exonerations across the country.

Dustin Driscoll graduated in 2006 from Westfield State University in Massachusetts with a BS in criminal justice, with a minor in psychology. After working as a financial crime analyst for Boston banks, investigating suspicious accounts associated with money laundering and/or terrorist activity, he relocated to Washington, DC, to work as an analyst within the Case Analysis Unit at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), providing analytical assistance to law enforcement officers working missing child cases. He was assigned to the Forensic Services Unit, where he conducted more in-depth analyses of cold-case missing and unidentified deceased children. In 2011, he was promoted to a Senior Analyst with NCMEC.

Dustin joined the University of North Texas Health Science Center in October 2011 as an analyst for the National Institute of Justice's National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs), which grew out of the Web site established by Las Vegas Coroner Mike Murphy. In January 2016, Dustin became a Regional System Administrator for NamUs Region 1: Arizona, California, Hawaii and Nevada. He assists law enforcement, medical examiners and coroners in their investigations of missing and unidentified persons by reviewing case information/files, informing investigators of NamUs resources, and ensuring all NamUs entry criteria is met. Dustin also helps to develop networks of criminal justice professionals and non-government agencies to enhance outside agencies’ understanding and use of NamUs, and identify agencies in need of additional training on NamUs and other missing/unidentified person resources.
