Innocent men

by Dom Corrigan

I read here that when you enter prison for the first time,

Certainly do not proclaim your innocence or claim that you were set up, 60% of inmates are innocent and no-one likes to hear someone else continually complaining about being hard done to.

Is this saying that 60% of inmates are in denial about their conviction, or that our justice system is shot and innocent men regularly go to gaol? Would I be naive in expecting that the former rather than the latter is the case?
