James Bain Round-up

From the blog Plain Error :

Well folks, we had a successful release of James Bain’s DNA test results which prove that he did not rape a little boy in 1974 and that he has been wrongfully incarcerated for over 35 years. Bain’s family was present and made some wonderful comments as well about how the wrongful incarceration has hurt them.

There has been a lot of press coverage and I wanted to point you all to some of it:

Lakeland Ledger (with video)
St. Pete Times
Tampa Tribune

Tampa Tribune again

AP Story in Miami Herald and dozens of other papers around the world
Fox TV in Tampa (with video)
ABC Action News Tampa (with two good videos)
Bay News 9 (with video)
Here is some video from the press conference courtesy of the Lakeland Ledger:
