    The headliner for a March fundraiser for the Illinois Innocence Project will be a band made up of wrongfully convicted musicians.

    The Exoneree band will play at the March 30th "Defenders of the Innocent" fundraiser in Springfield.

    Together, the quintet spent nearly 100 years behind bars for crimes they didn't commit.

    The band plays original rock, blues and country music.

    Its expenses will be covered by Juan Rivera Jr., who was wrongfully convicted three times of the 1992 rape and murder of a Waukegan girl.
