Tom Cress, a man of diminished mental capacity, was wrongfully convicted of a rape and murder that occurred in 1983 in Battle Creek, MI. His case was central to the founding of the Michigan Innocence Clinic: Clinic founders David Moran and Bridget McCormack worked on the case separately over the years, and it demonstrated to them the need for a non-DNA Innocence Project. Tom was released from prison when Gov. Granholm commuted his sentence in December of 2010.
