Innocence Project New Orleans (IPNO) represents innocent prisoners serving life sentences in Louisiana and Mississippi, and assists them with their transition into the free world upon their release.
IPNO works in the states with the country's highest incarceration rates and the highest rates of wrongful conviction in the country. By identifying and remedying cases and causes of wrongful conviction, we engage in high impact, frontline advocacy in the courts of law and public opinion, and lead community-based responses into the mistakes made by our criminal justice system.
During its first decade, IPNO won the freedom or exoneration of 21 wrongly convicted prisoners who had served a total of nearly 420 years in prisons between them.
