Michael Green

Michael Green was misidentified by a rape victim assaulted in Cleveland in 1983 and spent 13 years in prison. In addition, falsified forensics swayed the jury to seal Green’s fate. He was finally exonerated in Oct. 2011 after DNA evidence taken from a washcloth used by the victim following the attack eliminated Green as the perpetrator, and another man confessed to the crime. (Photo: Courtesy ABC News)
