Back to Ohio

It looks like the Ohio Innocence Project is starting to get rolling. The Plain Dealer in Cleveland reports four inmates are using the project to help push for DNA testing in their cases. Apparently, Ohio has a state law allowing DNA testing that includes some of the toughest restrictions in the nation. Inmates must prove with 100 percent certainty that their cases would be different with DNA testing.

In other news, Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mark Brown writes about the difficult path between proving innocence and receiving a pardon in Illinois.
