Digital Evidence Innocence Initiative

The Digital Evidence Innocence Initiative seeks to provide technical and forensic assessment and assistance for attorneys representing individuals who are convicted of crimes for which they are innocent in which digital evidence may have or could have been a deciding factor.  In order for us to assist you, the following must apply:

  1. You must be an attorney representing a person convicted of a crime.
  2. Your client must be factually innocent of the crime for which they have already been convicted. “Factually innocent” means that your client was not the person who committed the crime.
  3. Your client’s sentence must include at least a ten year period of incarceration.
  4. Your client must be no less than five years from your estimated release date.
  5. There must be some new evidence in your case which would establish your client’s innocence.  New evidence is evidence which was not known at the time of your sentencing. Such evidence may be the result of further investigation, or new or additional forensic testing.

If your case fits the above criteria, please completely answer the Digital Evidence Innocence Initiative request form below assistance.
