I’ve been to hell and back, but it feels good to be free.
Elevating science and research to the forefront of investigation and adjudication.
Careful examination of the hundreds of exonerations has identified disturbing trends that contribute to wrongful convictions–misapplication of forensic science, eyewitness misidentification, police-induced false confessions, government misconduct and inadequate defense. We work with the federal government and the states to secure resources and shape policies to help ensure that evidence used in investigations and court rooms is based on the best science and guided by appropriate standards.
I’m free. I thank God for science, for DNA testing and for the Innocence Project.
It was as if the whole family was exonerated.
Early on, the Innocence Project was considered a fringe group fighting windmills. Now, they make TV shows and movies portraying our heroes fighting for justice.
I went to death row, I could’ve been executed. We cannot un-execute someone.
What were once only hopes and dreams is now reality–freedom to live life.
