Mississippi Roads | Innocence Project | MPB

The Innocence Project began in 1992 by Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld. They saw that across the country, holes in the judicial system led to innocent people getting locked up in prison. Many had life sentences and some were even put on death row for crimes they did not commit. So far 232 men across the country, with 4 from Mississippi have been freed. After a combined 63 years in prison these four men are finally free.

    all the hours of free labor while in prison…who pays them for that. i mean no one can pay for the time . the years they were to be raising their children and in love iwth their wife and participating males in their families…uncle, father, brother, son cousin, family member. what a waste of precious time for the entire country . in this country some adults behave like foolish infants.. so sad

    So many wrongful convictions in Mississippi. Please free Jeffrey Havard! A non-DNA related case, with testimony from Steven Hayne convicting him!
