Innocence Project's Fundraiser:

Innocence Project NYC Marathon 2015

Innocence Project's Photo

BENEFITING: Innocence Project

EVENT: 2015 TCS New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015

THE STORY:

Photo: Angel Gonzalez with his dad for the first time in 20 years. Angel was exonerated in March 2015 and reunited with his family in Waukegan, Illinois.

Angel Gonzalez is now one of the 329 people in the United States who have been proven innocent by DNA testing since 1989. The Innocence Project provided direct representation or critical assistance in 176 of these cases. 

Angel was wrongly convicted of sexual assault and kidnapping largely due to an eyewitness misidentification, which was the result of a highly suggestive show-up identification procedure, and a false confession given during thirteen hours of interrogation.

His story—and the collective experiences of the 329 DNA exonerees—provides vital support for the Innocence Project’s recommended reforms to improve eyewitness identification practices, mandate the electronic recording of interrogations, and enhance the reliability of forensic science.

With each new exoneration and policy achievement, the Innocence Project is working to shape a criminal justice system that inspires confidence, ensures public safety and protects individual liberty.

The Innocence Project has 250 clients around the country, and we continue to receive hundreds of letters each month from others seeking our assistance. Please donate to help free the innocent. Thank you.
