Robert McClendon

Posted: 13 Aug 2008 01:06 PM CDT
After 18 years in prison for a rape he didn't commit, Robert McClendon was freed Monday night due to DNA evidence of his innocence. McClendon's attorneys at the Ohio Innocence Project said they expected prosecutors to formally drop charges within two weeks. Testing in his case was obtained as part of a joint project between the Columbus Dispatch and the Ohio Innocence Project. An Ohio lab provided DNA testing pro bono.
