Working on behalf of those wrongfully convicted of serious felony offenses
The Wesleyan Innocence Project is a student-run organization established, and officially recognized, in the Fall semester of 2005. Organization members investigate claims of innocence made by inmates in Texas and elsewhere, and they work with students, faculty, and local attorneys to secure and obtain exonerations for factually innocent individuals. The Wesleyan Innocence Project functions under the guidance of a faculty sponsor, Professor Malinda Seymore.
The Wesleyan Innocence
Project is now a member of the Innocence Network
(national). The Innocence Network
is an affiliation of organizations dedicated to providing pro bono
legal and investigative services to individuals seeking to prove innocence
of crimes for which they have been convicted and working to redress the causes of wrongful convictions. More information about the Network
and its member organizations can be found at innocencenetwork.org.
