The criminal justice system is not infallible. We do not know the precise rate of wrongful convictions, but we are certain that the system does sometimes convict and imprison innocent people. Although we have always known that wrongful convictions were a possibility, the number of people interested in this topic continues to grow. On this site, we hope to provide a valuable resource for people who are interested in learning more about wrongful convictions.
We hope you find this site to be both informative and useful. Always feel free to contact us with any new announcements regarding publications, news, and conferences.
Note: This site is designed to provide information on wrongful convictions. If you are a wrongfully convicted person in need of legal assistance, or are seeking legal services on behalf of an inmate, please contact a legal organization. You can check the Resources page to locate an innocence organization in your area.
