Wrongful Convictions
In this March 27, 2013 photo, Alan Northrop, right, and his girlfriend, Shawna Smith, left, leave the office of Rep. Tina Orwall, D- Des Moines, following a meeting in Olympia, Wash. Northrop was exonerated by DNA evidence after serving 17 years in prison for rape, and has been testifying before lawmakers in support of a bill sponsored by Orwall that would compensate those who have been wrongfully convicted.
