To Search or Sort: Place the cursor over a column heading and click on the arrow arrow You can then sort in Ascending or Descending order or click on a particular value to select the cases in that category.

The two columns with "Tags" in their labels allow you to sort and search cases by each of several additional characteristics. To see more detailed definitions for some of these terms, hover over their full names or click on the links:

The six columns on the far right of this page display separately the Contributing Factors that are listed together on the Summary Page. To save space, we use abbreviations. To see definitions of these factors, click on their full names:

Connected to: National Registry of Exonerations

The Filter finds cases that contain any of the words you enter if you check Or, or all of them if you check And. It is not a search that works with quotation marks. It does work with truncation, but not with truncation symbols such as * and !. It scans the Detailed and Summary Views, and the narrative summaries.

Note: An asterisk (*) in the column to the right of the "DNA" column means that the case is not included in the Innocence Project's list of DNA exonerations because post-conviction DNA evidence was not central to establishing innocence, and other non-DNA factors were essential to the exoneration.
