Dead man gets official pardon

In Texas, the governor is preparing to sign the state's first-ever posthumous pardon. Tim Cole, who died in 1999, was sentenced to 25 years for a rape that he didn't commit. Cole continued to insist he was innocence, though DNA testing wouldn't back that up until 2008.

Hat Tip: Many thanks, Keith G in PV!
