David Lee Wiggins
Tarrant County justice officials are posting fewer DNA exonerations than their counterparts in Dallas County.
After serving 24 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, today a North Texas man received an apology from a judge and a standing ovation. David Lee Wiggins was freed Friday after DNA tests proved he wasn’t the person who raped a 14-year-old girl.
DNA test results have cleared a man who’s served more than 20 years of a life sentence after being convicted of sexually assaulting a teenager.
