Request Help

The Exoneration Project (EP) works to correct wrongful convictions only in cases where the accused is innocent of the crimes charged, meaning they did not commit the crime(s) and had no involvement in the crime(s). We do not take cases where the claim is an affirmative defense, such as consensual sex and self-defense.

To request help, fill out our application and mail it to us at:

Exoneration Project Intake
311 N. Aberdeen Street, 3rd Floor
Chicago, IL 60607
