James Bain is free after a thirty-five year oopsie with the department of corrections. From CNN:
After more than three decades in prison, a Florida man was set free Thursday after a DNA test showed he did not kidnap and rape a 9-year-old boy in 1974.
"I'm not angry," James Bain, 54, told reporters after a brief hearing in Bartow, Florida.
"I got God in my head," said Bain, surrounded by supporters and wearing a T-shirt with "Not Guilty" across the front. "I knew one day he will reveal me."
In 1974, the 9-year-old Lake Wales, Florida, victim had told police that his attacker had bushy sideburns and a mustache. After being shown five photos of potential suspects, the victim picked out one of Bain, the police report said.
The victim, now 44, lives in Florida and was made aware of Bain's situation, according to multiple sources.
Speaking to reporters Thursday, Bain said he was going home with family. "I'm going to see my mom," he said.
35 years? Mr. Bain is a verrrrry patient man.
