Once you have reviewed the website I would like you to write a two page document (word), typed in font 12, times new roman, and double spaced. This assignment will be worth 10 points. You do not need a cover page nor do you need APA format. The only source you need you will find within the innocence project website.

Please answer the following questions.
1. Discuss two recent cases
2. Why was it started and who are the founders.
