Dallas man released after wrongfully imprisoned for 31 years

A Dallas man, who claimed his innocence in a 1981 sexual assault case, has now been released from prison after spending 31 years behind bars.

According to officials, the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office presented evidence that was originally left out of the case. The evidence was the victim’s description of her attacker and it did not match the man.

The man is 5 feet 6 inches and weighs 135 pounds, the attacker is described as a much larger man. He was then set free and the judge issued an apology. The man has stated for years that he was too small to be the attacker in the case and this evidence supports his claims.

It is important to have experienced representation on your side that may be able to help you through this difficult time step by step.
