Default Convictions vacated and new trials granted!!!

http://www.innocenceproject.org/kent...dewayne-clark/


A Circuit Court in Meade County, Kentucky, today reversed the 1995 murder convictions of Garr Keith Hardin and Jeffrey Dewayne Clark based on new DNA and other evidence pointing to their innocence. The two men have served more than 20 years of a life sentence for the crime.

“We are grateful that the court vacated the convictions of Mr. Hardin and Mr. Clark based on compelling new evidence of their innocence,” said Linda Smith, supervising attorney of the Kentucky Innocence Project. “We hope that Commonwealth’s Attorney David Williams will quickly realize that the original case was based on nothing more than hysteria and unreliable evidence that has today been completely discredited and will move quickly to dismiss the indictment.”

It's a shame it took 20 years to get it done but at least it finally happened!
