Help Free the Innocent

The Innocence Project is a national non-profit organization dedicated to freeing wrongfully convicted individuals through DNA testing. Since 1989, more than 335 people in the United States have been exonerated by DNA testing, including 33 who pleaded guilty to crimes they did not commit and 20 who served time on death row. The Innocence Project provided direct representation or critical assistance in more than 175 of these cases.

The Innocence Project was founded in 1992 by Barry C. Scheck and Peter J. Neufeld at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University to assist prisoners who could be proven innocent through DNA testing. Since 1989, more than 335 people in the United States have been exonerated by DNA testing, including 33 who pleaded guilty to crimes they did not commit and 20 who served time on death row. These innocent men and women served an average of 14 years in prison before exoneration and release. The Innocence Project provided direct representation or critical assistance in more than 175 of these cases.

The Innocence Project’s full-time staff attorneys and Cardozo clinic students provide direct representation or critical assistance in most of these cases. The Innocence Project’s groundbreaking use of DNA technology to free innocent people has provided irrefutable proof that wrongful convictions are not isolated or rare events but instead arise from systemic defects. The Innocence Project’s mission is nothing less than to free the staggering numbers of innocent people who remain incarcerated and to bring substantive reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment.
