Regarding Ray Krone

Ray Krone was the 100th person in modern history released due to actual innocence. By "actual innocence," I mean that he was not released due to what some might call a legal "technicality."

In fact, he was innocent. In this case, even DNA proved it.

I have met Ray once or twice since his release about two years and two months ago. Last January, I got to spend some quality time with him at the annual conference of the Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.

He is a great, classy, stand-up type of guy.

A feature story that ran in this week's Arizona Republic brought him back to memory. Go here.
