The Innocence Project in New Orleans has been successful in obtaining the freedom of a number of convicts wrongly convicted.? We talked? recently with Emily Maw who is the Executive Director, and Kathleen Norman, a board member.? They had some chilling stories to tell of people wrongfully convicted with full knowledge of law enforcement officials, including the FBI. DNA has been a great help? to determine the guilt or innocence of many who have been convicted.
