Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $1,376,206)
While 1,571 prisoners are in state custody for rapes and homicides from Orleans Parish, finding biological evidence, given the current state of the evidence facilities, is not possible with existing manpower. The Orleans Parish Postconviction DNA Testing Project will resolve this manpower shortage, determine the number of cases in which biological evidence exists, review every case for the potential for probative postconviction DNA testing and submit for testing those in which it could prove guilt or innocence.
