Q: How long does it take to determine if you’ll look into a case?
A: We review the convicted individual’s letter and determine if the case meets our criteria. The initial determination is made in approximately fewer than two weeks.
If the case does meet our criteria, we’ll send a detailed questionnaire to the individual to complete. Review of a questionnaire takes more time than reviewing a letter because of the large volume of requests. Therefore, it may take several months before the Project screeners decide whether or not to accept a case. We really appreciate your patience throughout this process.
