The Innocence Project is a non-profit legal clinic dedicated to bringing up appeals on cases where DNA can exonerate a convict. Since 1989, they have freed or cleared 191 people of the charges they were convicted of.
On January 17, they scored number 192. James Waller was the 12th person convicted in Dallas County, Texas who has been cleared by DNA testing.
Good thing there wasn’t a death penalty there. I’ve always felt that capital punishment is a good thing in that no criminal ever executed has ever been able to re-offend. But where there are so many chances for error in the system, with so many proven mistakes, I cringe at the possibility of an innocent person being executed.
