Innocence Project Of Texas Works To Free The 'Wrongfully Convicted'

Download Audio

Since 1992, the Innocence Project has worked diligently to free wrongfully convicted prisoners by using DNA testing. It also advocates for changing the criminal legal system to prevent false convictions in the future.

The organization has had hundreds of success stories such as the women who were known as “The San Antonio Four.” Each of the women had served about 15 years in prison for serious crimes against children before being released in 2013.

Nonprofit Quarterly's Amy Costello (@tinyspark_org) recently met with one of the four women in San Antonio and found that freedom is not entirely cause for celebration.

This segment aired on March 6, 2020.
