Types of Cases We Take

The Denver Innocence Project does not limit its review process to DNA cases. DIP reviews cases where there is evidence of actual innocence in support of the claim. Such cases may involve: witness recantations, eyewitness misidentification, coerced confessions, changes in science (junk science, shaken baby syndrome, bite mark evidence), government misconduct, or ineffective assistance of counsel, etc.

We accept cases where:

  1. The applicant is claiming actual innocence, in other words, that he/she did not participate in the crime. Therefore, we will not represent an individual who was convicted of conspiracy or accessory.
  2. The applicant was convicted in Colorado.
  3. The applicant is not currently represented by an attorney.
  4. The applicant has already had a trial and appeal.
