Man wrongly convicted for murder four decades ago is free now


Based on the testimony from a DNA expert, Joseph Sledge was found now innocent and walked out of the Columbus County Detention Center. He made a simple declaration to the media, saying he wants going home, sleeping in a normal bed and ” Probably get in a pool of water and swim.” Fortunately he has some relatives yet but he lost in detention four decades of his life. There have been 325 post-conviction DNA exonerations in the U.S. The Innocence Project receives 45 percent of its funding from individual contributions, 30 percent from foundations, 15 percent from an annual benefit dinner, 7 percent from the Cardozo School of Law (with which it is loosely affiliated), and the rest from corporations.
