James Bain

James Bain spent 35 years in prison for the 1974 rape of a 10-year-old boy after being misidentified by a relative of the victim. Bain was denied DNA testing several times until 2001, when the Innocence Project of Florida came to his aid. He was finally set free in December 2009. (Photo: courtesy PBS)
