Jarrett Adams is a post-conviction litigation attorney at the Innocence Project and litigates DNA cases throughout the country. Before practicing law, Adams spent seven years behind bars for a sexual assault he did not commit. With the help of the Wisconsin Innocence Project in 2007, Adams was released and pursued a law degree. After graduating from Loyola Chicago School of Law in 2015, Adams clerked for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, the same Circuit that overturned his conviction in 2007.
