About JIWC:

Justice for Illinois Wrongfully Convicted

The Purpose of Justice for Illinois’ Wrongfully Convicted is to serve and educate the public about the criminal justice system in Illinois and to aid and assist persons who have been wrongfully convicted of crimes in the State of Illinois in achieving a just outcome.

What we do:

  • Educate the general public about junk science, faulty eye witness identification, prosecutorial overreaching, police misconduct, media distortions, and unfair criminal justice practices;
  • Advocate for families and supporters of the wrongfully convicted to overturn wrongful convictions;
  • Provide resources for community groups that seek to support low income individuals who are wrongfully convicted of criminal conduct;
  •  Promote reform of the criminal justice system.
