Texas man likely to be freed after 22 years

A Texas man who spent 22 years in prison for a rape that forensic tests now suggest he did not commit is expected to be freed.

If cleared, Richard — who is serving a life sentence for a 1987 rape — would be the fourth Harris County man to have his conviction overturned because of faulty forensics from the Houston crime lab.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why I cannot support the death penalty. If you wrongly imprison someone, you can let them out (even if there is no way to replace those lost years) but once you execute someone, there is no way to bring them back to life.
