Exoneration Roundup

Based on a new Massachusetts law, six people have filed claims for compensation for wrongful conviction.  In Ohio, a woman called 911 claiming she was being assaulted and held at gunpoint in her apartment; an investigation showed she was at work the whole time and the alleged assailant was miles away the whole time.  Police report a spate of false sexual assault claims from a high school in Maryland.  In Boston, a lawsuit is proceeding by a person wrongfully implicated in an attack fabricated by a stressed-out cop who has since resigned.  [Jack Chin]
