How to Make an Innocence Claim

Requests for assistance based on a claim of innocence should be directed to one of the four public law school innocence projects

Participating Innocence Projects

The participating innocence projects have developed a standard case questionnaire which should be filled out completely and included with a request for assistance. This case questionnaire is also published in the Texas Offender Legal Handbook.

In addition to the four Texas public law school innocence programs, several other innocence projects operate in the state and may be able to provide assistance. For a directory of innocence projects, see the Innocence Network.

Please note that the Commission does not provide legal services.
