James Bain - Man Exonerated after 35 Years in Jail
James Bain is the latest person to be released from US jails because DNA testing proved that he could not have committed the crime. He has been released after wrongly spending 35 years in a Florida jail for raping and kidnapping a 9-year-old boy.
James Bain said, "I am not anrgy." Although he likely was angry when he was wrongly accused, I don't think that angry would be a normal emotion for someone being released from jail after 35 years.
On Thursday, state attorney Jerry Hill told the judge that DNA testing had excluded Bain from the crime.
"He's just not connected with this particular incident," Hill said.
"You are a free man," the judge told Bain.
Of the 245 people that have been exonerated by DNA testing, no person has wrongly spent more time in jail that James Bain.
