The Innocence Project and our clients will be getting some important media attention over the coming weeks. I’m excited to share this news with you because when these national television programs share the stories of the wrongfully convicted with their viewers, we reach millions of potential supporters who can join us to make the reforms necessary to protect the innocent.
Tonight, BET will premiere its new series “Vindicated,” which was created in consultation with the Innocence Project. Hosted by Morris Chestnut, the series profiles eight people who have been wrongfully convicted and exonerated through DNA and other means.
