Case Profiles

Florida’s exonerees have all been cleared of blame. In fact, by using DNA testing, they have been proven factually innocent of the crimes for which they were convicted. This explanation of what it is to be an exoneree is adapted from the Death Penalty Information Center:

Defendants must have been convicted and subsequently either-

a) their conviction was overturned AND

i) they were acquitted at re-trial or
ii) all charges were dropped

b) they were given an absolute pardon by the governor based on new evidence of innocence.
