IPTX Joins the Plea to Congress for More Support of Innocence-Favorable Legislation

Friday, October 26 2018

Federally funded innocence programs have dramatically increased the number of exonerations the innocence community is able to obtain. The money going into these programs is money well-spent. Additionally, federally-funded programs dedicated to the improvement of forensic science have helped elevate our criminal justice system from every angle. For these reasons, yesterday, the Innocence Project of Texas formally joined with other innocence projects, law schools, and organizations from around the nation in asking Congress for continued and increased support of these programs – for the benefit of not just the wrongly convicted but for our nation.
