James spent more than 27 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit and was freed Tuesday (April 29, 2008), after being incarcerated longer than any other wrongfully convicted U.S. inmate cleared by DNA testing. He was convicted primarily on the basis of testimony from two eyewitnesses. "I thank God for the existence of the Innocence Project," Woodard, 55, told the court. "Without that, I wouldn't be here today. I would be wasting away in prison." Woodard says the first thing he wanted to do is "breathe fresh, free air" and his biggest regret is not being with his mother when she died. This is just horrible, what are your thoughts on such injustice?
