Innocence Project wrote -

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

Facts on post-conviction DNA exonerations:                             

  • The first DNA exoneration took place in 1989. Exonerations have been won in 36 states and the District of Columbia; since 2000, there have been 247 exonerations.
  • 18 of the 316 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 13.5 years. The total number of years served is 4,206.
  • 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.
  • 69% of the people exonerated through DNA testing have been financially compensated. 37 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 153 (or 49%) of DNA exoneration cases.
