Dr Naughton is the founder of Innocence Network UK, which undertakes investigations into alleged wrongful convictions through the Innocence Project that it established at the University of Bristol - the first innocence project in the UK - and Innocence Projects at numerous other universities in England. He noted that 100 cases were currently being worked on in 26 Innocence projects in universities around the country. He also criticised the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) and called for its reform "so that it can be better placed to assist people who apply to it who might be innocent."
