Elmer Daniels

Elmer Daniels was 18 when he was arrested for a rape in Wilmington, Delaware, in January 1980. After our investigations, he walked out of prison at age 59, as we uncovered problems with the case so serious — and including links to an FBI crime lab scandal affecting thousands of cases the bureau is reviewing — that a judge dismissed the indictment.
