Nine exonerations since 2013!
2015 was a great year with 3 exonerations! Combined with MAIP’s recent successes, that makes 9 innocent men freed since 2013 – extraordinary results given our size.
Where are they now?
When Mike Hash was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole at age 20 for a murder he did not commit, he didn’t think he’d ever have the chance to get married – let alone to the high-school sweetheart he had to leave behind. But Trish supported Mike tirelessly for 15 years until he was released from prison in 2011. In September 2015, Mike and Trish got married with more than 150 friends and family in attendance. We’re so excited for Mike and Trish and for their future together.

To date. MAIP has secured the exoneration or release of 19 innocent men—three in 2015 alone! These men spent a total of more than 278 years in prison for crimes they did not commit. Please join us in our fight for freedom and social justice.
