The amount of cases in which DNA proved that people were convicted innocent is increasing every year. It is clear that innocence projects are of great importance. Of course a number of people claim to be innocent while they are guilty. Innocence projects can sort out wether or not convicted persons should get a new trial because of reasonable doubt about their quilt. Most of the the time there is no or very little money available for good investigations. For this reason IFS helps reviewing cases. If we are convinced that someone could be innocent we will write an Affidavit about possible DNA investigations. Important note: We get a lot of requests for help, but we are not lawyers. There is no way we can perform DNA investigations without consent from a judge. Because of this reason people who claim to be innocent should request help from the innocence projects in the state or country in which they are convicted and incarcerated.
There are several innocence projects which deal with cases in their own state or country. We work with several of them.
