Welcome To the National Capital Crime Assistance Network
Many of you will have known us as NDRAN of CURE, but we have a new name, and a new look! NCCAN works with innocent prisoners who are facing the death penalty, capital charges, or life without parole. We provide many essential services to these people and their families.
Our work consists of providing support to innocent people who have been unjustly imprisoned and their families. We also have fundraising initiatives to raise money for specific projects, such as retaining an attorney for a prisoner who is ready to take their case back into court.
You May Ask, "Aren't all people in prison guilty?"
The answer to this question is no. There are many avenues by which an innocent person can find themself in prison for the long term. These include unreliable eyewitness testimony, police corruption, and the misuse of prison informants. Statistics show that as many as 10% of the prison population may be innocent. Since the advent of DNA evidence, there have been 263 DNA exhonerations, and the number continues to grow.
