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 Attorney’s office finds a way to retry him.  Following a long string of cases involving faulty, or at the least,  questionable eyewitness identification, Mr. Dennis’ story should serve as another nail in the coffin of the death penalty.  He has always maintained his innocence, even after 21 years on death row. That’s half of his life spent on death row.

The good folks over at the Pennsylvania Innocence Project believed him. They’ve worked tirelessly for justice and it looks like, this time, they won. Watch this space for updates on the events to follow.
