The Innocent Convicts

We bring much-needed attention to the plight of Innocent Convicts, calling for transparency in the administration of Justice.

Mission

 

We are building the bridge to help VOCALIZE the cries of Men & Women who remain in prisons across the country trying to bring awareness of THEIR INNOCENCE. 

 

We understand their plight,  as our very own President of the organization DARRELL JONES has served over 32 years of a WRONGFUL CONVICTION.

Vision

Darrell Jones in conjunction with our FOUNDER.. Osagie N. Okoruwa have worked towards UNITING our efforts to have a common goal that we will be LOUDER TOGETHER in our quest for Justice.

The Men and Women you will see here, HAVE BEEN WRONGFULLY CONVICTED. Many still locked away not knowing what to do, or how to explain to their families what their needs are in their fight.

BEAKING!!!

Mr. Martinez was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Timothy Walker, despite the absence of DNA confirmation, forensics, eyewitnesses, or physical evidence to directly connect him to the crime. Prior to his conviction in April 2013, Mr. Martinez was a college student who had never been in trouble with the law.

 FREE DAVID YARDE

SIGN THE PETITION

David's Pic_edited.jpg

Mr. Yarde was sentenced to 15 to life imprisonment for a crime he didn't commit. David has overwhelming evidence proving his innocence, including three expert witness reports showing definitive proof of innocence. In 2017, the first forensics expert reviewed the conviction in David's case and came to the conclusion that it was impossible for David to have shot the victim. 

Just in!
