The Issues

Beyond representing people with claims of innocence, we work with lawmakers, coalition partners, and grassroots advocates to enact changes in the criminal justice system that would prevent future wrongful convictions.

Our Current Priorities

  • Ensure appropriate compensation for the wrongfully convicted
  • Require safeguards to protect against false, incentivized witness testimony
  • Update Montana’s post-conviction relief (PCR) law to ensure individuals have a meaningful opportunity to overturn wrongful convictions based on newly discovered evidence
  • Abolish the death penalty in Montana
