Mubarez Ahmed

Mubarez Ahmed was convicted in 2002 of two counts of murder in Detroit, Michigan. His charges were dismissed in 2018 after the sole eyewitness to the shootings recanted her trial testimony that Ahmed was the shooter, and it was revealed that a police officer had used false information to create probable cause for Ahmed's arrest.

Wilbert Jones

In 1974, Wilbert Jones (right, with IPNO Attorney William Aquino) was sentenced to life in prison in Baton Rouge, Louisiana for rape. He was exonerated in 2018 by evidence concealed by the prosecution that another man who more closely fit the description of the attacker had committed two similar rapes in the area. Jones served 44 years and 9 months in prison for his wrongful conviction. Only one other exoneree served longer: Richard Phillips, who was released 45 years and 2 months after his conviction.
