Proved Innocent, Stuck in Jail

A man who was convicted of rape in 1987, who was proven innocent by DNA tests by both the prosecuter’s and the defense’s laboratories of choice, remains in jail.

Asked what scientific basis he had for concluding that the testing was flawed, Mr. Castor said in an interview today: “I have no scientific basis. I know because I trust my detective and my tape-recorded confession. Therefore the results must be flawed until someone proves to me otherwise.”
