About the Idaho Innocence Project

The Idaho Innocence Project is part of the Forensic Justice Project at Boise State University.  Our mission is to correct and prevent wrongful convictions in Idaho through research, education, and litigation. Since 2005, we have helped start innocence organizations in Montana, Oregon, Ireland and France, worked on cases with 27 Innocence organizations in the US, and are now part of the Forensic Justice Program at Boise State University that investigates DNA cases throughout the US and abroad.
