MSNBC/Washington Post has the story

MSNBC/Washington Post has the story of a man twice convicted of raping a 9-year-old girl in Maryland. He was sent to death row and served 9 years of his sentence, only to be exonerated by DNA evidence. Freed in 1993, he recently learned of a new twist in the case: someone he knew in prison actually committed the crime.

Meanwhile, Florida (as was widely reported last week) has imposed a limit on how long a convict can wait before introducing DNA evidence -- we wouldn't want anyone to prove their innocence, I guess, since it would make executing them inconvenient.
