Miracle of Innocence
Exonerees Lamonte McIntyre and Darryl Burton co-founded Miracle of Innocence after spending more than two decades behind bars for crimes they didn’t commit.

After spending more than two decades behind bars for crimes they didn't commit, Lamonte McIntyre and Darryl Burton are teaming up to help others in similar situations.

Their new organization aims to free the innocent and help them once they're released. "I feel like I'm constantly trying to catch up to a world that moved on without me," McIntyre said.

Miracle of Innocence will host a virtual gala, “Turning Dreams Into Reality”, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 28. To register or donate, go to MiracleofInnocence.org.
