The Salem Witch Trials of 1692 played a key role in the development of the American justice system. During the time of the Salem Witch Trials, several innocent people were convicted and put to death on accusations of witchcraft. The trials were unjust and allowed the convicted very little opportunity to plea their case. Religion and superstition was far more prominant than actual reasoning. In a time were religion was the most important aspect of everyday life this was to be expected.
