BENEFITING: Innocence Project

EVENT: 2013 ING New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013

THE STORY:

On Sunday, November 3, 2013, a team of ten will run for the Innocence Project in the ING New York City Marathon, raising awareness about wrongful convictions and fundraising to help free the innocent. 

311 People in the U.S. Have Been Exonerated by DNA                         

  • The first DNA exoneration took place in 1989. Exonerations have been won in 36 states; since 2000, there have been 241 exonerations.
  • 18 of the 310 people exonerated through DNA served time on death row. Another 16 were charged with capital crimes but not sentenced to death.
  • The average length of time served by exonerees is 13.6 years. The total number of years served is approximately 4,136.
  • The average age of exonerees at the time of their wrongful convictions was 27.
  • In more than 25% of cases in a National Institute of Justice study, suspects were excluded once DNA testing was conducted during the criminal investigation.
  • 65% of the people exonerated through DNA testing have been financially compensated. 27 states, the federal government, and the District of Columbia have passed laws to compensate people who were wrongfully incarcerated.
     
  • An Innocence Project review of closed cases from 2004-2010 revealed that 22% of cases were closed because of lost or destroyed evidence.
     
  • The true suspects and/or perpetrators have been identified in 152 DNA exoneration cases.
