Twenty Years Later, Six Nebraskans are Cleared
Five people were exonerated Monday in Nebraska, nearly two decades after they were convicted of a murder they didn't commit.
In 1989, Joseph White was convicted of murder after four of his five co-defendants were coerced into falsely admitting to involvement in the crime and testifying against him. White spent 18 years in prison before he was released last year when DNA testing proved his innocence and pointed to the identity of the real perpetrator.
On Monday, White's five co-defendants were fully pardoned, clearing their names completely. Including these new cases, 232 people nationwide have been exonerated through DNA testing.
