Time Magazine Special Edition: Commemorating 25 Years of the Innocence Project

By Carlita Salazar

Just in time for its 25th anniversary, the Innocence Project is the centerpiece of Time magazine’s newly published special edition issue, Innocent: The Fight Against Wrongful Convictions. From its introduction—authored by New York Times columnist Jim Dwyer—to its last chapter, the issue explains how Innocence Project Co-Founders and Co-Directors Peter Neufeld and Barry Scheck fostered a movement in America’s criminal justice system through the use of DNA technology and pays tribute to clients as well as to some of the many players who have become central to the work of exonerating innocent people.

Highlights include the following:

  • Profiles on Innocence Project clients, including:
    • Marvin Anderson, Steven Barnes, Lewis Fogle, Angel Gonzalez, Andre Hatchett, Michelle Murphy and Anthony Wright
  • Profiles on Innocence Project Director of Post-Conviction Litigation Vanessa Potkin and Innocence Project Senior Staff Attorney Nina Morrison
  • Members of the Innocence Network including California Innocence Project Executive Director Justin Brooks, Jim Coleman and Theresa Newman, co-directors of the Wrongful Convictions Clinic at Duke Law School, Jon Eldan from After Innocence, Ohio Innocence Project Director Mark Godsey and Innocence Project New Orleans Executive Director Emily Maw

The issue will go on sale on February 17. It’s available on Amazon or select newsstands.

    My letter to the Editor of Time:

    “Innocent: The Fight Against Wrongful Convictions” is a laudable attempt to expose a long-festering injustice. However, it gives a pass to a large part of the problem. In many cases, prosecutors know full well that evidence against the accused is incomplete, imperfect, or contradictory, yet they strive for a conviction anyway. Nothing will change until prosecutors are held accountable.

    I believe you can call information and ask for Washington, DC and Federal Communication Commission with dialing assistance for investigation information. Using your cell phone is safer due to an investigation taking place regarding a Corrupt Government having access to communication. Also, the FBI is with Secret Service, and Central Intelligence Agency is available through the same means. Ask for dialing assistance.
    thank you
