Chicago Innocence Center

As investigative journalists, the Chicago Innocence Center primarily explores and exposes cases primarily involving murder (but not exclusively) in which the a person is facing life in prison or the death penalty. For CIC to consider the case, the inmate must claim actual innocence, not, for example, self-defense or ‘I was there but didn’t do it.’ We seek cases of “pure innocence.” Unlike law-based innocence projects, CIC only looks into cases where there is no DNA evidence available. To have the CIC consider a case, please contact them.
