Dallas County Frees 20th Wrongfully-Convicted Criminal

After 23 years in custody wrongfully-convicted rapist Jerry Lee Evans, second from right, walks away a free man from the Frank Crowley Criminal Courts Building in Dallas, on May 27, 2009. Evans 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. Evans is seen on his way to McDonald’s for a late lunch with cousins Henry Jackson (from left), Dwayne Jackson, and David Winfrey. (UPI Photo/Robert Hughes)
