Exoneration Roundup

A Louisiana man, convicted of rape when he was 16, has been conclusively exonerated by DNA after 24 years in prison and released.  A Maryland woman received probation for a conviction for making a false rape report; the sentencing judge noted that the person falsely accused could have been imprisoned for life; there's another false rape case from Pennsylvania.  A column in the St. Petersburg Times supports more efforts to prevent wrongful convictions.
