Robert Dewey, who was convicted in 1996 for the rape and murder of Jacie Taylor, is likely to walk free on Monday after DNA testing exonerated him.
“He’s overwhelmed, extremely excited; he’s anxious”
Another man exonerated by DNA evidence. I believe our justice system does a good job capturing and convicting guilty people but it breaks my heart to see a man jailed for 18 years. Robert Dewey was a loner, outsider and easy to convict but now as he tastes freedom police may be on the trail of the true rapist and murderer. I support the Innocence Project and other organizations working hard to right our justice systems’ wrong.
