The Innocence Project of Minnesota (IPMN) mission is simple: striving to keep innocent people from being convicted and to free people imprisoned for crimes they didn't commit. Nationwide, due to the efforts of the Innocence Network, more than 200 innocent people have been released from prison after serving an average of 12 years for crimes they did not commit.
