    And sometimes good things happen

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/07/24/dallas-mans-exoneration-makes-national-history/13040299/" rel="nofollow">http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/07/24/dallas-mans-exoneration-makes-national-history/13040299/


    Michael Phillips had long ago given up trying to clear his name. At 57, he was a registered sex offender, living in a nursing home, wheelchair-bound from severe sickle cell anemia.


    Then in May, two police officers delivered news that Phillips says only God could have ordained: Dallas County, Texas, prosecutors had proved through DNA testing that he had spent 12 years in prison for a rape he hadn't committed.


     


     


    What a sad story made worse by the fact that the actual perp got away with it.

    Ugghh...so sad SB. You're right..sadder that the perp got away with it...and sad for the victim too...never knowing.

    Imagine if this had been a death penalty case? Only in the last decade or so are we beginning to understand how many people were sentenced to death only to be cleared too late by DNA evidence.

    Just sad....
