About National Registry of Exonerations

The NRE is an internationally recognized archival, research, and public information project whose mission is to provide comprehensive information on all known exonerations of innocent criminal defendants in the United States, from 1989 through the present, in order to learn from past mistakes and prevent future wrongful convictions. It is housed at The Newkirk Center for Science & Society at UCI.
