Professor Mark Godsey and The Ohio Innocence Project
Wednesday, April 2nd! Reservations REQUIRED by Monday, March 31st.
Developed in 2003 by Professor Mark Godsey and then City Councilman John Cranley, with the support of the dean and determined donors, Ohio’s only Innocence Project is at UC, where the staff comprises director Godsey, two full-time staff attorneys, one part-time attorney, one administrative director and 16 to 20 students (called fellows), primarily conducting research to identify Ohio inmates who are innocent.
In its first 10 years, 6,650 inmates sought Ohio Innocence Project (OIP) assistance, and the staff determined they could potentially prove innocence for only 24 cases — a staggering .004 percent of the total. The rest were turned away. Of those 24, the OIP helped 16 get released from prison. Collectively, those 16 had served nearly 250 years incarcerated.
