We are currently working to free Dana Chandler, Chris Dunn, Travis Midgyett and full exoneration for Ralph McElroy. Thanks to you, it is very likely that they will be free in 2022 and we look forward to celebrating their freedom!


Several exonerees MOI support in the community include: Johnny Briscoe, Larry Callanan, Joe Amrine, and Reggie Griffin. 

We are now able to host live events to support our fundraising efforts. However, we are committed to raising funds because these inmates desperately need our help. But we can not do this without you!

To learn more about these cases and how you can help, please email: development@miracleofinnocence.org or call 913-717-5080 Ext. 103.

Checks can be entered online or mailed to:
Miracle of Innocence
13725 Metcalf Ave, #285
Overland Park, KS 66223

The inmates are very appreciative of any support you can provide.

How to Submit a Case

Miracle of Innocence only accepts cases submitted by US Mail from the inmate. We do not consider or respond to requests received by email or telephone.



Miracle of Innocence, Inc. is an advocacy and investigative organization that considers cases of factual innocence primarily in murder and rape cases carrying Life or Death sentences, but other cases of factual innocence may be considered. We consider a life sentence to be 25 years minimum to serve before parole eligibility. We do not take on accidental death, self-defense cases, or cases where the defendant had any involvement in the crime for which he/she was convicted. We only consider cases in Kansas and Missouri prisons.

How to Write Miracle of Innocence, Inc.

Inmates (only) if you fit the above criteria, send us a letter outlining the facts of your case. Your summary should include the following points:

  1. What you were convicted of? Give a brief description of the crime.

  2. Why were you arrested and taken to trial?

  3. What evidence was used to convict you?

  4. What evidence points toward your innocence?


We do not accept unsolicited documents. We will respond within eight weeks with a letter that clearly states what we want in the way of information and what you can expect from us if we can consider your case.

Other Information

It is important that you obtain your trial file and transcripts from your trial lawyer. Your trial file is the file of materials your lawyer had when he or she went to trial with you. The file should contain, police reports, forensic reports, witness statements, and pre-trial motions. It is vital that you obtain this file and transcripts. You will need them to work on your case. It also would be beneficial for you to see what the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA or FOIL) laws are for your state. Submit a request to the various relevant agencies for files relating to your case and the crime for which you were convicted. The prison law library will contain information about how and where to file. 

We are excited to announce the release of Ralph McElroy. Ralph served over 33 years. Miracle of Innocence is supporting Ralph in his return. We supplied him with a cell phone and fitted him for new glasses. MOI has weekly group therapy sessions available and our social worker meets with him several times a week.
