Who We Are

In Louisiana and Mississippi, the two states with the highest incarceration rates in the world, Innocence Project New Orleans frees innocent prisoners, exposes injustice and prevents wrongful convictions.


IPNO has won the freedom or exoneration of 25 wrongfully convicted prisoners. These men served nearly 525 years in Louisiana and Mississippi’s prisons between them.


Full and open public records are crucial to exonerating the innocent in prison and, more generally, allowing us to audit the accuracy of our criminal justice system.
