    Innocent Inmate Exoneration Programs

    FF-3300.3600

    Programs that work to vindicate and free from prison, inmates who claim to be innocent of the crimes for which they have been convicted and sentenced. The program may secure DNA tests which can be used to identify the perpetrator of a crime (or to establish the innocence of other suspects) when biological evidence has been left at a crime scene, provide investigative services and/or offer legal representation, particularly in situations where there is new evidence or evidence was overlooked or withheld by the prosecution during the original trial. DNA testing is effective on biological material that is decades old and can sometimes be used to prove that a conviction that predated the development of DNA testing was based upon incorrect factual findings.
