Mission

We work to free the wrongfully convicted and prevent future wrongful convictions from occurring.

 

 

What We Do

Since its inception in 2001, the Innocence Project of Minnesota has represented people who were wrongfully convicted for crimes they did not commit.  We also educate attorneys and criminal justice professionals on best practices, and work to reform the criminal justice system to prevent wrongful convictions and other unjust results in criminal cases.
