Introduction[edit]

The Innocent Man Project is a criminal justice learning resource on wrongful convictions, based on the Oklahoma cases of Ron Williamson and Dennis Fritz, as told in the bestseller, "The Innocent Man" by John Grisham. Using this resource, students of criminal justice will develop their awareness of controversial investigative and procedural techniques and other factual errors that can increase the risk of wrongful conviction in criminal prosecutions; processes and possible remedies for the prevention and correction of wrongful convictions; and the human dimension of wrongful convictions in modern criminal justice.
