A northwest Indiana man who served nearly 25 years in prison was released on Monday after new DNA technology cleared him in a 1989 rape.

Darryl Pinkins, 63, walked out of a Lake County correctional facility shortly before 11 a.m. "48 Hours'" cameras captured Pinkins' emotional reunion with his family, including a 24-year-old son who wasn't yet born when he began his prison term. (...)

(...) The case marks the first exoneration using a new DNA analysis program called TrueAllele, according to an Innocence Project news release. The process can provide reanalysis of old DNA results to pinpoint which people contributed to DNA mixtures.
