About New England Innocence Project

About this Organization:
The New England Innocence Project ("NEIP") provides pro bono legal assistance to inmates who are challenging their wrongful convictions. The organization's mission is to identify, investigate and exonerate wrongfully convicted individuals who are currently incarcerated in New England. NEIP currently focuses on the use of DNA evidence to achieve these goals. Over the past ten years, more than 150 individuals in the United States have had their convictions vacated after DNA testing established that they were innocent of the crimes for which they had been convicted and imprisoned. NEIP considers cases from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Connecticut and Rhode Island in which actual innocence is claimed.
