|MOJO is working in conjunction with the University of Oxford/Centre for Criminology on a research project, ‘The Aftermath of Wrongful Conviction: support for wrongfully convicted persons post-release’.
The study will look into the post-exoneration experience of persons who have been wrongfully convicted, to explore how such persons cope with their experience and what support they receive to help them to manage the practical and emotional impact of exoneration.
We are trying to identify anyone who has been exonerated, their friends/family, and professionals who have who have worked with exonorees, who may want to contribute to the study.
Laura Tilt will be undertaking the study. She will be in Glasgow from Monday 11 July till Friday 22 July doing interviews for the project. If you are in contact with anyone who may meet the criteria of the study could you get them to contact us to arrange appointments if they wish to contribute. Interviews will be held at the MOJO office in Glasgow but arrangements can be made to visit anyone who would like to contribute to the research.
We feel the study is vitally important to everyone fighting for justice for the innocent. The study will allow us to produce the evidence required to show the true impact of wrongful conviction, and will be a tool, which will aid all those, fighting for the rights of the innocent.
If you would like to take part in the research please contact me.
