FREEING THE INNOCENT
In Louisiana and Mississippi, the two states with the highest incarceration rates in the world, Innocence Project New Orleans (IPNO) is a national leader in the fight for freedom. Their leadership and growth has made them the second-largest non-law school clinic, free standing innocence project in the nation. They have an international reputation for winning exonerations, both in the minority of cases where DNA testing can prove innocence, and in more difficult cases where DNA does not exist or has been destroyed.
As of August 2015, IPNO has won the freedom or exoneration of 26 innocent men who collectively served 535 years behind bars before IPNO cleared their name.
