Marshall Hale

In 1984, Marshall Hale was sentenced to 23 1/2 to 47 years in prison for rape in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was exonerated with the help of the Pennsylvania Innocence Project in 2017 after the discovery of laboratory tests--known to the prosecution at the time of trial--that excluded him as the rapist.

​In 1995, DeMarlo Berry was sentenced to life in prison for murdering the manager of a fast food restaurant during a robbery. He was exonerated with the help of the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center in 2017, after the real killer confessed to the crime and a jailhouse informant admitted he falsely testified that Berry confessed to the crime. This is the first exoneration due in part to the efforts of the Clark County Conviction Integrity Unit. (Photo: Richard Brian/Las Vegas Review Journal)
