Coleman Mea Culpa

In the interest of full disclosure, we are going to post the DNA test that incriminates Roger Keith Coleman in the death of his sister-in-law. We are working on getting the document onto the Innocence Institute Web Site which will be available in PDF format.

After five exonerations through DNA testing in Virginia this year, Mr. Coleman's guilt is a mixed victory for the Virginia judicial system. Governor Mark Warner has ordered the retesting of available DNA evidence in more than 300 cases.

Mr. Coleman's guilt was undoubtably a blow to those who believed in his innocence but were wrong, especially Centurion Ministries which investigated his case and brought it to the national stage.
