Murder convictions overturned or death row inmates released?
Any links/stories where DNA evidence has caused a murder conviction to later be overturned after the person has done time or caused a death row inmate to be cleared? My son needs ideas for a criminal justice report.
Type 'death row DNA' into your search engine. I got over a million hits. There is a good selection of sites with stories and facts about the DNA evidence and releases.
There was the one governor in Ohio who released I think it was 8 females from deathrow to life terms something like 4 hours before his term expired.
Go to www.judgedmenalliance.com. you'll find one story that was just ran on april 30th Jerry Miller was exonerated after serving 25 years for a rape he did not commit. proven by DNA evidence!!!
DNA story . last week April 25-07
Here's one from yahoo. An uncle was aquitted based on dna... But now aledged that once out of prison he and a nephew raped and murdered a woman.
Hope the law works this time, and he stays arrested.
