Prevent Wrongful Convictions

MTIP works in the courts, in our communities, and before policymakers to exonerate the innocent and prevent wrongful convictions.

Since 2008, we have:

  • Led the effort to create one of the strongest post-conviction DNA testing laws in the country.
  • Led the effort to require police statewide to electronically record custodial interrogations in felony criminal cases.
  • Led the effort to create an interim study on appropriate compensation for wrongfully convicted individuals.
  • Sponsored CLEs and other seminars on wrongful convictions, Brady violations, mistaken eyewitness evidence, DNA evidence, and other innocence issues.
