District Attorney-Led Sentence Reviews

Beginning in 2021, the newly-elected District Attorney in New Orleans established a Civil Rights Division to review unjust convictions and excessive sentences out of Orleans Parish. Parole Project has offered to provide reentry support to those individuals who have served more than twenty years and are given a reduced sentence, including people convicted by non-unanimous juries, a vestige of Jim Crow laws dating back more than a century.
