The Innocent Convicts Film Project is a spotlight for stories of innocent defendants, like Tim Cole, a Texas Tech Student and Army Veteran, who needlessly lost his life when his medication was withheld during wrongful incarceration.
Principal photography is complete on the first six episodes of the film project – stories of Tim Cole, Audrey Edmunds, Uriah Courtney, Mike Hansen, Lamont McKoy and The Monfils Six.
Donate today to help us examine the heinous causes and devastating aftermath of wrongful convictions around the United States.
“Film is a powerful tool to expose injustice,
galvanize action and hold the powerful accountable."

The Monfils Six (COMING SOON)
Directed by Osagie N. Okoruwa
“The Monfils Six” is a case involving six men who were convicted of killing a co-worker (Tom Monfils) at a Green Bay, Wisconsin paper mill in the early 1990s. Thanks to an exhaustive investigative effort by two authors who spent seven years writing a book about the convictions, new attorneys are taking a fresh look at the case. Did police and prosecutorial tunnel vision result in the most egregious miscarriage of justice in Wisconsin history?
