Innocence after 26 years of "Guilt."

Today, the essence of why I practice criminal defense was achieved by the Innocence Project and a couple of civil lawyers from one of Florida's largest law firms.

A man named Jose Diaz was released from prison after serving 26 years for crimes he did not commit.

The details are in today's Miami Herald.

It is a story everyone should read, and know about, especially the "everyone's guilty" crowd.


  1. It is really scary to think that a human being was deprived of 26 years because of a crime he did not commit. Thank God for DNA testing, which, I hope, is used immediately today.

  2. I look for blogs as great as your work. Fine
