A Message from the District Attorney

The Travis County District Attorney’s Conviction Integrity Unit investigates prior convictions to ensure that no innocent person convicted in the county remains in prison. The Conviction Integrity Unit will be reviewing convictions that stemmed from the closure of the APD DNA Lab along with claims of innocence by people in prison and their families. According to the Innocence Project, a national group working to free the wrongfully convicted, factors leading to wrongful convictions include eyewitness misidentification, improper use of forensics, false confessions, and the use of informants. Other causes include government misconduct and bad lawyering.

The Conviction Integrity Unit has a duty to aggressively seek out and pursue innocence and ensure that no person who is innocent or entitled to a new trial due to a wrongful conviction is forgotten in prison. The intake forms below will allow families and people who are incarcerated to request for a case to be reviewed.
