THE STORY:

On Sunday, November 3, 2013, I will join the Innocence Project team in the ING New York City Marathon, raising awareness about wrongful convictions and fundraising to help free the innocent. To learn more about our work, see the list of stats below, visit our webiste http://www.innocenceproject.org/, or ask me!

I couldn't be more excited to join my coworkers Vanessa and Liz and the rest of the IP marathon team in this pursuit. To run for a cause that I am deeply passionate about makes it all the more thrilling. My entire life perspective has been deeply affected by the work I witness here every day; never have I encountered a group of people more selfless and dedicated to affecting change. The fantastic efforts of my coworkers and everyone who advocates for the wrongfully convicted will motivate me to cross the finish line! 

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.
