It looks like Jimmy Dennis may finally be freed. Today, Senior US District Judge Anita Brody overturned his conviction and ordered his release. Unless, that is, the District Attorneyâ€™s office finds a way to retry him.Â Following a long string of cases involving faulty, or at the least, Â questionable eyewitness identification, Mr. Dennisâ€™ story should serve as another nail in the coffin of the death penalty.Â He has always maintained his innocence, even after 21 years on death row. Thatâ€™s half of his life spent on death row.
The good folks over at the Pennsylvania Innocence Project believed him. Theyâ€™ve worked tirelessly for justice and it looks like, this time, they won. Watch this space for updates on the events to follow.
