Location: 160 Boylston Street Boston MA 02116 USA
Results: In June we hosted our annual litigation training, with over 120 attorneys and other criminal justice experts in attendance. This summer we assisted with Vermont's first ever DNA exoneration and were able to walk an innocent man out of prison. Recently, we have moved offices and are now on our own for the first time, and have been devoting time to creating a functional and productive NEIP environment.
Geographic areas served: New England States: Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine

I am a law professor whose research and teaching has focussed on miscarriages of justice for over 15 years. I am also a member of NEIP's Board of Trustees. Although my involvement with wrongful convictions started purely as an academic interest, I have been privileged through involvement with NEIP to meet and spend time with exonerated prisoners. My students and I have been inspired by their moving stories of surviving tragic injustice, and struggling with varied success after release from prison to rebuild their lives . I have also been privileged to witness the dedication and competence of NEIP staff and volunteers, who work both hard and effectively to assist innocent prisoners win exoneration. NEIP is an organization highly deserving of your support.
