Correcting and Preventing Wrongful Convictions in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
2014 was a tremendous year for the Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project – and for Sabein Burgess and Kevin Martin, both of whom were exonerated thanks to our efforts. Combined with the successes of 2013, we have achieved 6 exonerations – extraordinary results given our size. Click for a summary of each exoneration.
MAIP is proud to announce that Kevin Martin has been exonerated after serving 26 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
Congratulations to Mr. Martin, his family, and his legal team from MAIP and the Law Office of Bernard Grimm.
2015 is MAIP’s 15th Anniversary! Come celebrate at our upcoming 8th Annual Awards Luncheon on July 15. Stay tuned for more details soon.
Our 2014 Luncheon was a huge success. We honored Champion of Justice winner Jennifer Thompson and Defender of Innocence winners Hogan Lovells, Miller & Chevalier, and Steptoe & Johnson, as well as the amazing exonerees in attendance.
