DNA frees convicted man after 35 years

Bain

In Florida, a man named James Bain has been freed from prison after new DNA testing showed that he didn't kidnap and rape a 9-year-old boy back in the early 1970s. Bain, who was convicted on the basis of the boy's eyewitness testimony, says he's not angry. He's served more time than any person freed through the work of the Innocence Project.
