INNOCENCE PROJECT

1401 N. CHARLES STREET

BALTIMORE, MD 21201

OPD operates the Innocence Project in collaboration with the University of Baltimore School of Law.  The Innocence Project screens over 200 annually to assess whether an inmate claiming innocence may have a viable wrongful conviction claim.  The project utilizes contemporary forensic testing on old evidence retained by police.  The project litigates viable innocence claims through all stages of the proceedings.
