Validity’s Exoneree Program will provide up to $100,000 to individuals with proven innocence claims who have served at least five years in prison and are currently in civil litigation seeking compensation from the city, county or state that wrongfully prosecuted and incarcerated them. The funding – which Validity expects to average around $75,000 – provides vital assistance to exonerees with living expenses while they await a judgment or settlement of their civil proceedings.  

Validity has a short list of conditions for its Exoneree Program, including: 

  • Individuals have been incarcerated longer than five years 
  • Lawyers representing claimants have a proven track record of success  
  • A financial advisor creates an expense budget for the duration of the litigation  
  • The relevant city, state or county indemnifies employees for at least $5 million
