We free the innocent
Innocent people are sometimes convicted of crimes they don’t commit. It’s a tragedy that can happen to anyone. Wrongful convictions are traumatic to the innocent and their families, denying people their basic human liberties and robbing them of the best years of their lives. The victims of crime are denied true justice and public safety is not achieved when the actual perpetrator is not held accountable.
Washington Innocence Project fights for innocent people across the state who have been wrongfully convicted by representing them in the courts and advocating for policy reform. Twenty-four innocent men and women are living free because of our work. Fifteen have been exonerated and fully cleared of charges—collectively, they served more than 100 years for crimes they did not commit.
