Chicago Innocence Center

As investigative journalists, the Chicago Innocence Center primarily explores and exposes cases involving murder (but not exclusively) in which the inmate is facing life in prison or (outside but nearby Illinois) 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.
