Highlanders of the Day ~ Rickey Johnson and the Innocence Project

After over a quarter of a century in Louisiana prisons for a rape he did not commit, Rickey Johnson was freed today thanks to DNA evidence obtained through the advocacy of the Innocence Project. Counselor Vanessa Potkin reminds us of others there in Louisiana that are also awaiting DNA testing. I'll remind you again of Alabama's own Tommy Lee Arthur. P/W
