Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project

aka MAIP   |   Washington, DC   |  http://www.exonerate.org

Mission

The Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project's primary mission is to secure the exoneration and release of persons who have been convicted of crimes they did not commit and who are serving sentences in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. We litigate compelling innocence claims that have undergone a rigorous screening and investigation process. In addition, because we recognize that correcting wrongful convictions after the fact is extremely difficult, we work to prevent the conviction of innocent people in the first place by striving to improve the criminal justice system.

Freeing The Innocent

We continually accept requests for assistance from convicted persons asserting their innocence. We receive more than 400 requests for assistance each year. In response to those inquiries, the Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project preliminary screens cases to determine whether there is a strong, and potentially provable, claim of innocence. Cases that present such a claim will be referred to a pro bono attorney, who will work with students to fully investigate and seek exoneration and release through judicial proceedings and executive clemency. Throughout this process, the Innocence Project will serve as a resource, providing training, case management, and administrative aid. MAIP is also involved in relevant policy initiatives, such as legislation to enable post-conviction DNA analysis, and legislation extending time periods for making claims of innocence.

Population(s) Served
Incarcerated people

The Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project (MAIP) has a mission to correct and prevent the conviction of innocent people in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. We provide pro bono investigative and civil legal support to prisoners in our region who claim they are innocent. We achieve that work through two main activities: 1) screening and litigating innocence claims; and 2) advocating for policy reforms to prevent wrongful convictions and to make them easier to correct in the future.
