Behind The Innocence Files is The Innocence Project, an American non-profit legal organisation that has been operating since 1992 to free wrongfully imprisoned persons using DNA testing. The group also advocates for criminal justice reform to prevent future injustices.
Thanks to the efforts of The Innocence Project, 367 people in the United States have now been exonerated by DNA testing, including 21 who were serving time on death row.
The cases presented on The Innocence Files are split into three categories, bringing the flaws in the various elements of America's judicial system under close examination: 'The Evidence,' 'The Witness' and 'The Prosecution.'
Featuring in the series are eight convictions that have now been overturned: Kennedy Brewer, Levon Brooks, Alfred Dewayne Brown, Franky Carrillo, Keith Harward, Thomas Haynesworth, Chester Hollman III, and Kenneth Wyniemko.
