James Waller exonerated by DNA testing, 25 years later

The case against James Waller was largely based on the 12-year-old victim’s identification of him in 1982; thanks to DNA profiling, Waller is exonerated, in 2007.

Waller is the 12th person since 2001 whose conviction in Dallas County has been overturned.

Curiously, in the early 1990's, many people were concerned more about DNA establishing guilt too readily. It's about truth.
