Innocence Network Releases Their 2012 Annual Report of Exonerees

December 19, 2012

“The 22 wrongful convictions detailed in the Innocence Network’s 2012 report are tragic reminders of how much work is still needed to uncover and prevent these terrible injustices.

So as you read about the tragic miscarriages of justice contained in this report, remember that in many ways those profiled are the lucky ones. For every person who walked out of prison a free individual this year, there are many more still incarcerated, hoping that 2013 will be the year they finally get the break that will prove their innocence.”
