AGAIN - Another Innocent Man Freed By Innocence Project

YAHOO! News reports that a New York judge ordered the release of a man who served 22 years in prison after being wrongly convicted of rape, assault and robbery.

Alan Newton, now 44, is now free due to the work of the Innocence Project.

Read on their website about how he spent 12 years fighting for access to the evidence that would eventually exonerate him, and show that someone else committed the crime.

"I'm just glad to be home," Newton said.

I'm glad you're home too Mr. Newton.
