Submit a Case
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.

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 crime to which you were convicted. The prison law library will contain information about how and where to file.
