About Us

Innocence Delaware, a 501(c)(3) organization, was established in 2018. The project will provide pro bono services to investigate and, where appropriate, seek relief for claims of wrongful convictions. It will also provide post-exoneration support to individuals who have been proven innocent. Innocence Delaware will address and look to remedy the causes for wrongful convictions: official misconduct, bad science, eyewitness misidentification and prejudice. When not working with specific individuals, the project will help educate the public about potential criminal justice reforms related to wrongful conviction and exoneration, as well as access to justice.

Housed at Widener University Delaware Law School, Innocence Delaware is in the unique position of having law students eager to work on these important issues in a clinical setting.
