After 24 years in prison, Man is Exonerated

From the New York Times, an article about Robert Clark Jr, who will soon be freed from a life sentence in prison. From the article:

After 24 years in prison - one of the longest incarcerations served by the 164 people who have been exonerated by DNA testing - Mr. Clark, 45, was buoyant at the prospect of seeing his siblings, children and the five grandchildren he did not have when he was sentenced in 1982.
"I still got a little life in me," he said.
Though wrenching, Mr. Clark's story is not so different from that of others who were wrongfully convicted. What is stunning about it is the fact that the man who the authorities now believe was the real rapist, Floyd Antonio Arnold, was in easy reach of the police at the time.
