Thousands of innocent Americans are in prison for crimes they didn't commit. The Innocence Project, through the use of DNA evidence and legal reform, helps prove these people innocent - so that justice is served, and so the actual perpetrators can be found and imprisoned.

The Innocence Project's cofounder, Barry Scheck, shares the stage here with Jerry Miller, the 200th exoneree of the organization. Miller served 24 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit.
