National Registry of Exonerations

If you are interested in exonerations in Texas and beyond, there is a great resource to consult at the National Registry of Exonerations.

The National Registry of Exonerations is a joint project of theUniversity of the Michigan Law School and the Center on Wrongful Convictions at Northwestern University School of Law. They provide detailed information about every known exoneration in the United States since 1989—cases in which a person was wrongly convicted of a crime and later cleared of all the charges.  

Since its launch in 2012, many new cases have been added to the registry.  As of this writing the total is at 1064 exonerations.  From the older or lesser-known exonerations to those whose freedom has not yet been secured - the number is sure to keep rising.  Follow the link below to learn more!
