The idea was simple: If digital evidence could prove people were guilty of a crime, it could also prove that people who had been wrongfully convicted were innocent.

New evidence can now be uncovered by applying new digital forensic technology to older cell phones to recover more data than was what previously accessible at the time. These advancements affect millions of cell phones dating back as far as 2013.

The Digital Evidence Innocence Initiative is a not for profit, volunteer organization formed through collaborative efforts of a criminal defense investigator, criminal defense attorney and digital forensic expert. We help identify post conviction cases in which new digital forensic technology can be used to recover new evidence from older devices. We can provide free re-examination of qualifying cases of affected devices in cases of claims of actual innocence.

In our ongoing efforts to prevent future wrongful convictions we provide public defenders equal access to digital forensic experts through our co-founder eLab Digital Forensics and developed digital evidence training for defense attorneys and investigators to advance our dual goal of a uniformed national standard.
