DEATH ROW INMATE KENNETH IRELAND...RELEASED AFTER 21 YEARS IN PRISON

Kenneth Ireland was released from prison, after being in prison for 21 YEARS for a crime of murder and rape he did not commit. DNA cleared him. He was just 16 years old when he was convicted of this crime. Just think of the years he lost. All of his youth.

Isn't that sad that that man lost 21 yrs. of his life --for something he did not do... What a shame.

I'm glad they have DNA now--because that will help from now on.

What do you think happened to that woman who got abducted in Blairsville, GA????

Hugs,
Betsy

Betsy, there are other former prison death row inmates that this happened to. There was a Michael Pardue that this happened to in Alabama. He had been in prison for 28 YEARS...Here is a link to his story. http://www.justicedenied.org/issue/issue_26/freeing_the_innocent_jd_issue26.html
