DNA exonerations have been responsible for releasing over 250 innocent people from prison.  And it has helped expose cases of prosecutorial misconduct all over the country.  Penn & Teller: Bullshit! s8e7: Criminal Justice, Showtime 2010

 

 

She was too honest, too natural for this frightened man; too remote from his tidy laws.  She was, after all, a country girl; disordered, hysterical, loving.  She was muddled and mischievous as a chimney-jackdaw, she made her nest of rags and jewels, was happy in the sunlight, squawked loudly at danger, pried and was insatiably curious, forgot when to eat or ate all day, and sang when sunsets were red.  Laurie Lee, Cider with Rosie  

 

 

We were green and innocent, not fully understanding what we did, imitating their rituals and roles were played out before us.  Cider with Rosie ***** 2015 starring Samantha Mortin & Archie Cox & Ruby Ashbourne Serkis & Emma Curtis & Jessica Hynes & June Whitfield & Annette Crosbie & Timothy Spall & Billy Howle & Georgie Smith et al, director Philippa Lowthorpe, BBC 2015

There are no innocent Americans.  George Carlin, When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?

 

 

The essential self is innocent, and when it tastes its own innocence knows that it lives for ever.  John Updike

 

 

Maybe I don’t really want to know what's going on.  Maybe I’d rather not know.  Maybe I couldn’t bear to know.  The Fall was a fall from innocence to knowledge.  Margaret Atwood 

 

 

In their innocence, very young children know themselves to be light and love.  If we will allow them, they can teach us to see ourselves the same way.  Michael Jackson

 

 

I knew I was innocent and I knew it would come out the way it did.  Carlos Marcello

 

 

All I have left is my innocence.  Silent Witness 2011 starring Dermot Mulroney & Anne Heche & Michael Cudlitz & Anthony Ruivivar & Lisa Berry & Sarah Allen & Inga Cadranel & Judd Hirsch & Jayne Eastwood et al, director Peter Markle, Sam

 

 

Don’t care what people say

Just follow your own way

Don’t give up and use the chance

To return to innocence.

 

That’s not the beginning of the end

That’s the return to yourself

The return to innocence.  Enigma, Return to Innocence

 

 

We are all special cases.  We all want to appeal against something!  Everyone insists on his innocence, at all costs, even if it means accusing the rest of the human race and heaven.  Albert Camus

 

 

A heart unspotted is not easily daunted.  The purest spring is not so free from mud.  William Shakespeare, The First Part of the Contention II Henry VI III i 100-101, Gloucester

 

 

I doubt not then but innocence shall make

False accusation blush, and tyranny

Tremble at patience.  William Shakespeare, The Winter’s Tale III ii 31

 

 

It is better to risk saving a guilty person than to condemn an innocent one.  Voltaire, Zadig   

 

 

The innocent and the beautiful

Have no enemy but time.  W B Yeats

 

 

That’s what it takes to be a hero: a little gem of innocence inside you that makes you want to believe that there still exists a right and wrong, that decency will somehow triumph in the end.  Lise Hand

 

 

Innocence is always unsuspicious.  Thomas C Haliburton

 

 

In former days, everyone found the assumption of innocence so easy; today we find fatally easy the assumption of guilt.  Amanda Cross, Poetic Justice, 1970

 

 

Innocence always calls mutely for protection, when we would be so much wiser to guard ourselves against it: innocence is like a dumb leper who has lost his bell, wandering the world meaning no harm.  Graham Greene, The Quiet American, 1955

 

 

Innocence is a kind of insanity.  Graham Greene, The Quiet American

 

 

All things truly wicked start from innocence.  Ernest Hemingway

 

 

There is no aphrodisiac like innocence.  Jean Baudrillard  

 

 

Once you start asking questions, innocence is gone.  Mary Astor, attributed

 

 

Innocence is ignorance.  Lynne Reid Banks

That thou shouldst wear the mask of guilt to hide

Thine awful and serenest countenance

From those who know thee not!  Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Cenci V iii 24

And dont make such an outcry about your feeling innocent, it spoils the not unfavourable impression that you make in other respects.  Also you should be far more reticent, nearly everything you have just said could have been implied in your behaviour with the help of a word here and there, and in any case does not redound particularly to your credit.  Franz Kafka, The Trial p11

 

 

Men who talked grossly became silent when Dorian Gray entered the room.  There was something in the purity of his face that rebuked them.  His mere presence seemed to recall to them the memory of the innocence that they had tarnished.  They wondered how one so charming and graceful as he was could have escaped the stain of an age that was at once sordid and sensual.  Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

It could happen to anybody, and it did.  ibid.  Barry Scheck

 

They found four different sperms in her and none of them were mine.  ibid.  victim of false rape charge
