But too often, the rush to judgment in our justice system overlooks crucial evidence and truth, leaving innocent lives shattered in its wake.

NO ONE SHOULD BE Silenced by injustice

But too often, the rush to judgment in our justice system overlooks crucial evidence and truth, leaving innocent lives shattered in its wake.

Featured Story

Triumph Over Tragedy

Juan Rayford Jr. and Dupree Glass are shining examples of what we can achieve together. After nearly 17 long years in prison, their convictions were finally overturned, shedding light on the cracks in our justice system. This victory showcases the strength of the human spirit and the urgent need for change.

Under new California law, these wrongly convicted men will now released after almost 17 years — half of their lives — that they lost behind bars.

"We’re told to trust the system, but legal gaps can LEAD TO conviction with NO EVIDENCE"

Our justice system was intended to safeguard the innocent. Instead, it often ensnares them, stealing years and derailing lives.

The ominous“kill zone theory” is a legal loophole that allows people to be charged with attempted murder in situations involving multi-victims, even with no concrete evidence of intent to kill.

This theory disproportionately impacts people of color and leads to severe sentences that defy fairness. Innocence OC is committed to challenging this flawed theory, advocating for a more just interpretation of the law, and correcting the injustices caused by its misuse.

We advocate for the innocent and unjustly accused. Our focus spans a broad range of cases. Additionally, we support those deprived of adequate legal assistance.


Our justice system was created to protect and serve innocent people. But, too often, it traps the innocent and fails to deliver true justice, fairness, and impartiality.

Years are stolen.
Families are destroyed.



People who are wrongfully sentenced lose an average of nine invaluable years, victims of a failing justice system.



Studies show that 4% of those incarcerated in the U.S. are innocent. In California alone, that’s about 4,000 innocent lives behind bars.
