    About This Project

    Individuals who are exonerated after being wrongfully incarcerated face many difficulties upon their release from prison. Our project aims to identify specific factors that exacerbate the prejudice and discrimination that exonerees face—specifically, the effects of exonerees' race and type of crime they were wrongfully convicted of on their experiences upon release. By so doing, empirically supported policy reforms can be proposed to aid those who have been wrongfully convicted upon release.
