Criminologist: Throughout its history, the judicial system of the United States has been the most careful in the trials of serious crimes involving homicide in which a wrongful conviction might lead to the irreversible punishment of execution. A retrospective analysis of all cases in the country between 1970 and the last year in which the death penalty was awarded has found that 4 percent of all defendants who were executed during this period were actually innocent.

Which of the following statements may reasonably be inferred from the criminologist's statements above?

AThe probability that a person charged with a crime less serious than homicide would be wrongfully convicted is likely to be greater than 4 percent.
BThere is a 4 percent chance that a person standing trial in the judicial system of the United States would be wrongfully convicted.
C4 out of every 100 convicts awarded death penalty for homicide in the United States are found to be not guilty upon appeal.
DFor crimes in which a death sentence may be awarded, only 4 percent of all defendants are likely to be executed.
EDeath penalty would be more likely for a person found guilty of more serious crimes such as terrorism and treason than for someone only found guilty of a single homicide.
