Our Work in 2022

2022 has been a busy year! So far, in cases spread across the Commonwealth, we have...

…completed 35 in-depth reports evaluating innocence claims and moved hundreds more cases through our 4 stages of review with the help of volunteer attorneys and interns.

...provided reentry services among 35 freed and exonerated individuals and returned to in-person meetings of the reentry support group, Transition to Innocence.

…filed or supplemented 26 briefs and petitions in state and federal courts, and filed or supplemented 5 clemency applications, as we pursue all available avenues for potential relief for clients with valid claims of innocence.

…welcomed 2 clients home and celebrated one successful case resolution as Greg Brown ended his 25-year ordeal. Read about Greg and browse other client stories here.

Since our establishment in 2009, the Pennsylvania Innocence Project has secured the release of 25 innocent clients. Soon, we will welcome more home. We have 3 current cases in which prosecutors have joined us in asking courts to vacate clients' convictions and we expect similar positive outcomes to be recommended to the courts in several cases early in the new year. Your support will make the next exoneration of an innocent person possible.

Please join us to unlock the truth and free the innocent. Make a donation to the Pennsylvania Innocence Project today.
