Watching the great work that  Innocence Project New Orleans and organizations like them that are helping innocence or race charged gain access to attorneys  and investigators/ Lanardo Myrick states that his charges we so bad the a quick review of the indictments will confuse any attorney on any level. Mr Myrick was charged with Illegal Access Device fraud in July of 2001. This was an enhance charge because when the federal government indicted him, there was no Illegal Access Device charge. His co defendant was charged with conspiracy to commit Identity Theft. That in itself is confusing. Each defendant charged with conspiracy to commit different crimes. Neither charged with the others crime.

This two-year grant will allow them to review cases of incarcerated people who say they have been wrongfully convicted.
