Helping the Wrongfully Convicted
Although we are not accepting new clients at this time there is much you can do, acting as an advocate to help your loved one and/or friend to help him/her overturn their wrongful conviction
- Contact the Innocence Project in your state and ask them to mail your loved one an application (the Innocence Projects only deal with the inmate). However that doesn't mean you can't help your loved one with the application. But the application typically has to be in his handwriting and submitted by him/her.
- Learn everything you can about your loved one's case. This to include reading/studying trial transcripts, discovery, forensic reports, crime scene photos and videos, police reports, witness statements, etc.
- Design and build a web site a web site that shows your loved one's innocence, and how and why he/her was wrongfully convicted.
- Create a Facebook page and get as many people as you can to LIKE the page. Post to this page often about anything relating to the case and any items of personal interest that may be of interest to people that have LIKEd the page.
- You may also want to consider building a Facebook group that is an interactive way for members to interact with each other about the case. Some people only build a Facebook Page or Facebook Group but there is nothing wrong with having both.
- Create a Twitter account. This is another way of keeping the case in front of the public.
- Build relationships with local and national media trying to get them to do an investigative report/story on your loved one's wrongful conviction.
- Contact the School of Journalism at your local university to see if they would be willing to take on your loved one's case as a student project
- Contact the Law School at your local university to see if they would be willing to take on your loved one's case as a student project
- Contact Internet radio stations that support the wrongfully convicted to see if they'll broadcast your case; they typically are always looking for a good wrongfully convicted case..
