Man Jailed For 30 Years Cleared By DNA
A Texas man,Cornelius Dupree Jr., was declared innocent Tuesday after spending almost 30 years in prison for a crime his DNA says he didn't commit. He was convicted in 1979 of rape and robbery of a 26 year old woman and sentenced to 75 years. Twice during his sentence he was offered parole if he admitted his guilt, but he maintained his innocence. He is now 51 years old. If that was me, I would expect a few get out of jail free cards in my future, and an all expense paid trip to the Nevada brothel of my choice.
