Pardon Requested For Rape Convict Based On New Evidence

ABCnews reported in this story that a Texas man who has already served 10 years of a 99 year sentence for the rape of a sixteen year old girl may be pardoned based on new DNA evidence. His conviction was based primarily on witness testimony, and the prosecution team has changed their views on the case and have submitted a request for pardon to the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles.
