About the Conviction Integrity Unit
The overarching goal of the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office is to seek justice in every case. In pursuit of that goal, the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office established the Conviction Integrity Unit (CIU) in 2018 to investigate wrongful conviction claims. The purpose of the CIU is to create a transparent, effective, and thorough review of legitimate claims of actual innocence, and to advance and uphold integrity and trust in our justice system. Upon request, the CIU will review legitimate claims of actual innocence, investigate further where warranted, and take action to rectify any cases where someone was wrongfully convicted.
