Correcting and Preventing Wrongful Convictions in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
2014 has been a tremendous year so far 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 in the past 16 months. 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.
Congratulations to Champion of Justice winner Jennifer Thompson, Defender of Innocence winners Hogan Lovells, Miller & Chevalier, and Steptoe & Johnson, as well as the amazing exonerees who came out for our Seventh Annual Luncheon today. And of course a huge thank you to all of our supporters who made this event possible!
