Dallas County Frees 20th Wrongfully-Convicted Criminal

After being released by Judge Carter Thompson, wrongfully-convicted rapist Jerry Lee Evans, 47, chats with a well-wisher in Dallas County Criminal District Court 5 in Dallas, on May 27, 2009. Evans, who spent 23 years in jail, is the 20th man exonerated in Dallas with DNA evidence. In 1986 Evans was convicted of raping an 18-year-old Southern Methodist University student, who allegedly was told by police to pick Evans out of a lineup. (UPI Photo/Robert Hughes)
