Man freed after 27 years in Prison, DNA clears him

Man, I cannot imagine the anger and frustration he felt  for all that time lost. He was 18 when sentenced to 75 years.

"The victim could not identify Green in person when he was first detained but later picked him from a photo lineup as one of her attackers. Green was convicted of aggravated sexual assault and sentenced to 75 years in prison. He was the only person convicted in the case."

The dude happened to be walking near the crime scene and got picked up... click the title for the full story.   He was convicted in 1983, makes me wonder two things... how many other innocents are there?? ( actually, how many others got away cus someone else to the fall for it)  and how many of those "mistakes" are never uncovered?

and why did he get 75 years when so many guys get probation for raping molesting kids now?

Of course she was an adult, but there should be some parity in sentencing  IMO.   Are the prisons that over crowded with drug addicts that we let rapists go ?

Harris county (Houston) is the third largest county in the country.
