About Us

Wrongful Conviction News is a crowd-sourced media platform. Our mission is to provide a wide range of wrongful conviction news while providing free advertising to help advocates promote the cases they support.

This website is designed to provide content that includes both professional and high-quality user-generated contributions.

All registered users are encouraged to contribute to the site. All submissions are reviewed by our staff before being published. We are looking for high quality well sourced articles detailing all aspects of wrongful convictions. Please visited our “Publish your Articles” page to learn more about our content requirements.

Wrongful Conviction News is an Injustice Anywhere website. Injustice Anywhere is an all-volunteer organization working to correct wrongful convictions. Please join the discussion on the Injustice Anywhere Forum. Wrongful convictions are a worldwide epidemic.  We must do more to prevent the unjust imprisonment of innocent people. If we work together we can all make a difference.

How did Injustice Anywhere get started?

Our first mission began in early 2010 when we created Injustice in Perugia (IIP), a grassroots organization that worked to secure freedom for Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, two innocent people wrongfully convicted for murder in Perugia, Italy. Both were declared innocent on appeal in October 2011 after 1427 days of wrongful imprisonment.

Our work with IIP opened our eyes to a growing worldwide problem that continues to go mostly unnoticed by anyone not directly affected. Wrongful convictions occur all around the world. We must do more to prevent the unjust imprisonment of innocent people, and in doing so, we must focus on the larger picture, not just the cases we see highlighted on television. If we choose to turn our backs on this epidemic, we risk creating more victims like Clarence Elkins, Christopher Turner, and Danny Brown. Who are these people? Even though their cases were not sensational enough to get the attention of cable news programs, they were all cases of wrongful conviction, only to be corrected after each had lost many years of their lives. There are hundreds of similar cases that go mostly unnoticed, but are of no less importance than any case that happens to attract the attention of the media.

Wrongful convictions jeopardize public safety by keeping the real perpetrators on the streets to commit more crimes.

    Hello.
    I do not see anyplace to send a message privately. I would like to know how to submit the case of my husband, Daniel E. Palacios, who currently sits in a seg unit in Marion Correctional , NC, because he and five inmates complained about a broken ac unit on their block. They have been in seg since August 31, and my phone calls have been smugly refused when I ask for an explanation, and a return time to his cell.

    My husband has no priors, and is of Chicano descent. He was sentenced to 113 years in 2011, with no evidence to support the allegations. He was racially profiled and never allowed the right to a forensic expert in his defense. The jury was threatened and coerced into a unanimous decision of guilt, and I was threatened with jail time if I went on the witness stand. We have two special needs’ boys and my husband was terrified we would lose them, so he wouldn’t allow me to testify.

    I have written a 16 page explanation that has been sitting on the NC Bar’s desk for over a year, citing prosecutorial misconduct, blatant disregard for the Constitutional Rights of an American citizen, and racial profiling and discrimination. No one will lift a finger.
    Can you help us? We have lost everything.
    Thank you for reading.

    • Hi Rochelle, Hmm…there is a Facebook Group called “injusticeanywhere”. Also, there is injusticeanywhere.org You are welcome to send me a PM throught there. I’m michellesings. Or contact any of the admin’s on either the FB group or the website. I would be happy to read more about this. 🙂

        Hi MICHELLE knows LESS theres a website called true justice.org. It’s a website that exposes the guilt of Amanda Knox and exposes the lack of expertise of your husband who is campaigning Amanda’s innocence. It’s a great read. Get back to me and let me know what you think!

      • oz33

        tick tock tick tock tick tock!

    • Also, I would send this to Judges for Justice. That would be great. We’ll see if we can find someone to look at the case. 🙂 I’m horrified for what it sounds like you’re going through. I know you’ve had to learn a lot of patience, but in the mean time, how you respond to every little thing that happens to you all, is all you can do. Try to respond well. The people who I’m recommending REALLY look at cases with a fine tooth comb, but if there is anything being violated that is not OK. Best to you..
      🙁

        Thank you. I will start with your fb.
        Regards,
        Rochelle, Atsila Agisdii

        • Have you had a chance to go there? I shared it and I think people are interested in the info. Did you say there is a 20 page report? I’d love to see it if this is possible. 🙂 You can find me on FB and PM me. I can’t put info here cause there are some really weird people here, you understand.. or you can find me on twitter, michellsings

            Thank you for the interest. I went to the web site where you husband? is, and I emailed a copy of the complaint to the NC Bar that they have had for two years. It has 16 pages of misconduct by the prosecution, along with his threatening me if I testified on behalf of my husband. There is a four page letter to the Governor, asking for intervention from the wrongful use isolation and medical neglect. There is a 10 page report explaining how CPS only did a one sided ‘interview’ and did not look at the entire story, nor the neglect and abuse of the children’s mother, or the molestation. I have not sent that to CPS, as it is not quite finished, but they have agreed to review all of the information. If someone doesn’t step in, though, it will all be useless.

            I found ‘judges for justice’, and sent them a copy of the letter to the governor, as it is sort of an overview of the situation. PLease let me know what you would find most useful. I have not heard back from either site you mentioned where I sent the information so far.
            Regards,

            Rochelle

            Sorry, neglect and molestation by the mother, and then the resulting issues with my two children. It is very difficult, and sensitive, sorry.

          • Oh wow, I’m so sorry. I will talk to Steve and to Judges for Justice to make sure they look at this. It sounds very sensitive indeed. Hang in there.

            Thank you. just finished the 18 p. report/formal grievance against CPS, and need some advocacy to pursue justice. This is the testimony that I was never allowed to share with either CPS during the investigation, nor with the jury during the rigged trial. Belssings,

            Unfortunately my wife is on strong medication, she hears voices, who tell her she is Quincy. Please don’t be given false hope, go to a real lawyer. Bruce who runs this website is a women’s coat salesmen. They are attempting to profit from murder.

        • Atsila Agisdii

          How do i delete this entire thread? I poured out my whole story here for nothing. Please delete.

          • Atsila Agisdii

            Id really appreciate it

      Rochelle, On prosecutorial misconduct, go to the website where they are gathering cases of prosecutorial misconduct in the “states”. If you want to take serious action in your state, please contact me. Try to attend the first national conference, “Innocence Summit” in Washington DC, June 20-21. http://www.prosecutorintegrity.org

    If I were those who conspired to wrongfully convict Mr Camm I would be very scared.
