DNA Frees Man After 27 Years in Prison

After 27 years locked up in prison for a crime he did not commit, James Lee Woodard was cleared of the 1980 murder of his girlfriend, becoming the 18th person in Dallas County to have his conviction over-turned. That is more than any other county nationally, according to the Innocence Project, a New York-based legal nonprofit that specializes in overturning wrongful convictions, particularly using DNA.

Keep up the good work, Innocence Project.
