Hear the story of Alan Newton, an innocent man who spent 21 years behind bars for a crime he didn't commit.

On July 6, 2006, Mr. Newton was exonerated of rape, robbery and assault charges. He had asked for DNA testing in 1994, and his request was denied because evidence had been presumed to be lost. In 2005, at the Innocence Project’s request, the district attorney’s office found the rape kit after an exhaustive search. Postconviction DNA testing then proved that Newton was not the perpetrator of this crime.
