COMING SOON on this page – a more detailed story line for many of those innocent men and women who were falsely accused, wrongfully convicted, and eventually found innocent. While there are many locations online where you can read their stories, it is the opinion of ‘The Innocence Chronicles’ that the list linked here is the most comprehensive, and up to date compilation of these individuals to be found anywhere.
ABOUT THE REGISTRY
The National Registry of Exonerations is a project of the Newkirk Center for Science & Society at University of California Irvine, the University of Michigan Law School and Michigan State University College of Law. It was founded in 2012 in conjunction with the Center on Wrongful Convictions at Northwestern University School of Law. The Registry provides detailed information about every known exoneration in the United States since 1989—cases in which a person was wrongly convicted of a crime and later cleared of all the charges based on new evidence of innocence.
The Innocence Chronicles makes no claim of involvement in detailing this list – but offers it as a link for our readers ease in finding this important information quickly and easily.
