“Exonerees”: Innocent released

Again and again we refer on our website to cases of inmates released from death row as innocent. And also again and again you read here a concrete number, at the moment we speak of 189 exonerees in the USA.

With other sources, you will find other numbers on this in some cases. These numbers can differ depending on the source, because often quite different evaluation characteristics are taken as a basis. The German Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty refers to the figures published by the Death Penalty Information Center (DPIC), since their criteria seem to us to be the most comprehensible.

A list of those released as innocent from death row since 1973 in the USA
and their cases in brief description are to be found in the website of the
Death Penalty Information Center (DPIC)!
