On the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Innocence Project—which is devoted to overturning wrongful convictions—this special edition looks at some of the most compelling and confounding cases of those who’ve served time for crimes they didn’t commit: the recently exonerated West Memphis 3, the Central Park jogger defendant; the Making a Murderer subject, Steven Avery, who served 18 years for a rape before he was proved innocent by DNA evidence. How and why do these convictions happen? Highlights include:

  • Death row cases: exonerated before it was too late
  • The new science of innocence: the latest developments in DNA evidence
  • The attorneys who have dedicated their lives to getting innocent prisoners out of jail
