The Innocence Project was founded in 1992 by Barry C. Scheck and Peter J. Neufeld at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University to assist prisoners who could be proven innocent through DNA testing. To date, 289 people in the United States have been exonerated by DNA testing, including 17 who served time on death row. These people served an average of 13 years in prison before exoneration and release.

This is a picture of Uriah Courtney walking out of prison and into the arms of his parents. This morning the San Diego DA announced the dismissal of the charges against Uriah, who was serving a life-sentence for a rape and kidnapping he did not commit. The California Innocence Project pushed for a re-examination of the DNA evidence, which lead the police to the real perpetrator. Congratulations to Uriah, his family, and the California Innocence Project on this happy news!
