AND FROM EARLIER:
The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles is recommending clemency for a Fort Worth man who was wrongfully convicted on rape charges 25 years ago.
As a Texas Tech University student in 1985, Cole became the target of a serial rape investigation in Lubbock and, a year later, he was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
DNA tests and a confession from another man cleared him of the crime in 2009, which was advocated by the Innocence Project.
"To say that the wheels of justice turn slowly would be an understatement," said Cory Session, Cole's brother. "The question is: How many more Tim Coles are out there?"
