DALLAS – A courtroom packed with family and friends burst into applause Thursday when a judge freed a Dallas man who spent 27 years in prison for aggravated sexual assault before DNA evidence cleared him.
Johnny Pinchback, the 22nd person to be exonerated through DNA testing in Dallas County since 2001, was found to have been wrongly convicted of raping two teenage girls in a Dallas field in 1984.
Dressed in a white pinstriped suit bought for him by a fellow exoneree two weeks ago, Pinchback, 55, said faith and support from his family kept him motivated to fight for his innocence.
