A news article came out today about the Case to Exonerate Timothy Cole.
Timothy Cole was convicted of rape in 1986, and died in prison in 1999.
He was proven innocent thanks to DNA Testing this February of 2009.
He is one of many cases that are being revised using DNA profiling, thanks in large part to the Innocence Project, which is a non-profit that aims to get innocent people, that have been wrongly convicted, out of jail.
This case has highlighted the need for DNA testing in delicate matters, both legal and personal, and the benefits for not only finding guilt, but also to assure someone's innocence.
