Now there are 18 that have been cleared by DNA in Dallas County. This is the most exonerated in any county in the nation since 2001.
Patrick Waller is just another example of how people have been sent to prison for crimes that they did not commit. The system is broken and have been for years. Mr. Waller was robbed of 16 years of his life and will not ever be able to get those years back. He states "It's been a struggle daily - going to bed, knowing I'm someplace I don't deserve to be." Can you imagine the feelings that have to be built up inside of a person who has been wrongfully imprisoned?
Why are so many people being exonerated in Dallas County?
