A DNA Test Leads To the Pardoning of Man Convicted 39-Years Ago

A man from California has finally received pardon 39 years after being convicted wrongly of killing his former girlfriend and her son. The pardon was issued after his innocence was proven by a DNA test. The 70-year-old Craig Richard Coley was released immediately from a Lancaster state prison on Wednesday. This was after a pardon was issued by Governor Jerry Brown to free the wrongly convicted man. The Governor said in the pardon note that for the last 38 years, Coley had been the model inmate. While in prison, Coley avoided violence and gangs and dedicated himself to studying religion.
