Correcting and Preventing Wrongful Convictions in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.


The Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project depends on the financial support of generous contributors.  While The George Washington University Law School provides us with some financial and in-kind support, that support is not nearly enough to cover our expenses, including investigation and litigation expenses and staff salaries and benefits.

Donations will go directly to important case-related work, such as:

$7,000 – travel, documents, and experts in one exoneration case

$1,000 – testing costs for 1 piece of evidence in a DNA case

$500 – one hour of a medical expert’s time to review autopsy reports to determine whether the government’s theory about the crime matches the physical evidence

$250 – one hour of an eyewitness identification expert’s time to review an identification procedure and help us determine whether it was flawed and likely led to a wrongful conviction

$100 – a staff investigator’s trip to visit a prospective client in prison

$50 – one investigate file from a police department
