Lawyers with the Ohio Innocence Project have helped free more than two dozen inmates, who were unjustly imprisoned for crimes they did not commit.
The lawyers talked exclusively to News 5 about how they sort through thousands of cases and narrow down who they are going to represent.
More than 8,000 inmates have requested help, claiming they are innocent.
Lawyer Jennifer Bergeron talked about her most recent case of Evin King who was released in Cleveland last month.
“He wrote to us and asked us to assist him, and that’s when we got additional experts to look at it,” said Bergeron.
