In 1988, James Calvin Tillman was convicted of rape. He was sentenced to a 45 year in prison. At 26, he wouldn’t be seeing the light of day for decades.

Tuesday, Tillman breathed his first breath of fresh air on the outside. He originally was convicted on a photo ID by the victim and circumstantial evidence. A DNA test has proven that they had the wrong man. Tillman’s DNA was not a match.

He’s 44 now and starting over. Meanwhile, it’s back to the drawing board for the Hartford Police Department. The DNA from the attacker does not match anyone in Connecticut database or the Federal database.
