Is it possible to re-open the case in order to prove the inmate's innocence?

if an inmate has been convicted to 25 years, is it possible to re-open the case in order to prove the inmate's innocence ? (by presenting the case to the supreme court for example?) because i believe it is unfair that anyone pays 25 years of his life for a crime he never committed

The only way that cases get reopened is where there is DNA that can unequivocally prove their innocence. If this is a potential DNA case, you should contact the Innocence Project. There will be no more trials or appeals at this late stage as the time to file would have expired.
