From the Legal Director
The Pennsylvania Innocence Project has grown tremendously in four short years. To celebrate our anniversary this year, we return to where we began: the National Constitution Center. We are proud to honor the extraordinary efforts of a Project supporter, Denise Foderaro Quattrone, who has devoted her time to exonerating the convicted innocent.
I hope you can join us on May 8, at the Constitution Center, as we mark our fourth year working to free the convicted innocent.
|Senator Greenleaf Introduces Bills for Conviction Integrity in Pa.
On March 20, Pennsylvania state Senator Stewart Greenleaf introduced a trio of bills aimed at promoting Conviction Integrity in Pennsylvania.
Senator Greenleaf noted that law enforcement and prosecutors have begun working on these issues, but he felt that introducing these bills "keeps the recommendations on the table for further discussion, consideration and possible implementation."
We will be notifying our supporters when these bills come up for consideration. To follow the developments, sign up to get our Action Alerts
and make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
|Pa. Innocence Project is Headed West!|
After four years of work developing the foundation for the Pennsylvania Innocence Project, we are now ready to begin reaching out across the entire state. On May 2, the Project will hold its first event in Pittsburgh, with the great assistance of Duquesne Law School professor John Rago and Project Board Membe Dave Fawcett. We will hold a day-long training for lawyers interested in working with the Project in litigating claims of innocence. Similar to other "boot camp" trainings we have done in the past, this day marks the first full program for lawyers who practice in and near Pittsburgh.
Mission of Pennsylvania Innocence Project
The Pennsylvania Innocence Project works to exonerate those convicted of crimes they did not commit and to prevent innocent people from being convicted.
