Current Cases

The Illinois Innocence Project (IIP) conducts research and investigative activities for attorneys representing convicted inmates in cases where there is a strong likelihood that the individuals, even though convicted, are actually innocent.

The Project concentrates its efforts on individuals who, without the assistance of the Project, are likely to remain wrongfully incarcerated for life or a substantial number of years.

The Project provides assistance using students, faculty, investigators, attorneys and others willing to work to exonerate these individuals.
