    The Innocence Project has helped to clear two more wrongly accused Texas inmates. But the exonerations based on DNA evidence for a crime committed over thirty years ago are a first for the state. One man has been released; the other is awaiting the outcome of evidence testing in a separate conviction.

    The recent discovery of evidence preserved in the Texas crime lab since prior to 1981 holds promise for inmates serving time since the 1970's for crimes they did not commit. The exonerations of Dupree and Massingill are the first among the older cases, but more are likely to follow.
