Innocence project gets new grants

by

MADISON (WSAU) The U-W Madison group that seeks to exonerate wrongly-convicted criminals is getting over a million-dollars in new grants.

The Wisconsin Innocence Project has been awarded $778,000 -dollars from the National Institute of Justice, to expand its efforts to find cases where D-N-A evidence supports a convict’s claim of innocence. Also, the Innocence Project is getting almost a $250,000 from the Wrongful Conviction Review Program in the Bureau of Justice Assistance. That funding will put an Innocence Project attorney in the state public defender’s office.

The person will look for cases where D-N-A evidence can be used to prove people’s innocence earlier in the court process.
