Information For Inmates

The Innocence Project of Iowa partners with the Midwest Innocence Project and the Wrongful Conviction Division of the State Public Defender of Iowa to review and litigate cases. To request assistance from the the Iowa innocence partnership, an inmate should:

  • Carefully review our criteria* for case acceptance. Cases not meeting these criteria will not be considered.
  • Submit a completed questionnaire* if our criteria are met. The questionnaire must be completed by the individual requesting assistance and must be submitted by mail. Unfortunately, we are unable to process questionnaires submitted by friends or family members. Incomplete questionnaires cannot be considered. Completed questionnaires should be mailed to:Midwest Innocence Project

Questions or requests for documents should be submitted in writing to the above address or using our online contact form.  Correspondence sent to other addresses will not receive a response.  As an all-volunteer organization we are unable to accept telephone inquiries.
