ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida prosecutor who got into a legal fight with the governor for her refusal to seek the death penalty is setting up a unit to look at possible wrongful convictions.

State Attorney Aramis Ayala said this week that the unit will review claims of innocence by individuals convicted of crimes in her circuit which makes up most of metro Orlando.

Ayala says she hopes there have been no wrongful convictions but past exonerations around the nation show wrongful convictions happen.

Ayala's declaration last year that she would no longer seek the death penalty triggered a fight with Gov. Rick Scott, who took away cases from her office.

Earlier this year, she said her office will no longer request monetary bail bonds for defendants accused of low-level crimes.
