This is an organisation devoted to justice, and dedicated to exonerating people who have been wrongfully convicted of crimes using ‘hard’ evidence (such as DNA testing). To really engage with the reality of wrongful conviction, listen to the album ‘Black robes and lawyers’ by William Dillon, and read his story at www.innocenceproject.org/Content/William_Dillon.php.
