Village Voice review by Jennifer Gonnerman:

These men were forgotten while they were locked up, and they are forgotten again on the outside. Most receive no money and no help. They struggle to rebuild their lives and to undo the soul-destroying effects of prison. One pounds on a punching bag to release his rage; another pursues a degree in psychology. After Innocence is both riveting and disturbing. Each man's story reminds us how fallible our legal system is—and each raises the question: How many other innocent people are still locked up?
