    NOTE: The PCAO Conviction Integrity Unit (including all other assisting units and individuals) reviews cases for the sole purpose of investigating claims of actual innocence. The decision to review and further investigate a claim cannot be inferred as an acceptance of the validity of the alleged innocence claim. Moreover, in consenting to allow DNA testing, the State of Arizona does not concede and takes no position on the significance (or lack thereof) of any DNA results which may be obtained in the course of the testing. Moreover, the Unit does not act as legal counsel to any person whose case is being investigated.
