Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: August 19, 2013, 4:45 PM

Description

The mission of the Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project is to provide pro bono investigative and legal assistance to convicted prisoners in Virginia, Maryland, or the District of Columbia whose innocence can be proved by DNA testing or newly discovered evidence. MAIP also supports legislative reforms to prevent and reverse wrongful convictions.

The Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project was founded in 2000 by a group of D.C. area attorneys that identified the need for a group that could focus on the wrongful convictions in the tri-state area. This project addresses cases with both DNA evidence as well as other forms of evidence that could prove exculpatory. Since its formation, our Project has received over 1,800 requests for aid.

The Project also supports legislative reforms to prevent and reverse wrongful convictions.

The Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project is affiliated with the Innocence Network, a web of similar grassroots efforts across the nation. It is housed at The George Washington University Law School.
