Man Exonerated by DNA is Freed After 24 Years

I can only imagine how miserable it must have been when he was convicted 24 years ago. Imagine knowing you didn't do something, but being found gilty and sent to prison for the rest of your life. That is the ordeal Alan Crotzer went through, but his story has a happy ending...

From MSNBC.com -- "Alan Crotzer stepped into the warm sunlight outside the courthouse Monday and raised his arms to the sky, celebrating his freedom after more than 24 years behind bars for crimes he didn’t commit.

A judge freed the 45-year-old Crotzer after DNA testing and other evidence convinced prosecutors he was not involved in the 1981 armed robbery and rapes that led to his 130-year prison sentence.

“It’s been a long time coming,” said Crotzer, his black hair graying at the temples. “Thank God for this day.”

Make it a great day!
