At last! Texas shows the way!

As you may have gathered from reading here over the past several months, Central Dallas Ministries has been intimately involved with a very special group of men as they work hard to rebuild their shattered lives. Known around here as "the Exonerees," all were convicted and imprisoned for crimes they did not commit.

Thanks to the efforts of lots of people, including our own Rev. Gerald Britt, the Texas Legislature has placed a new law on Governor Rick Perry's desk that will make Texas the national leader in providing for these who have been treated so unjustly.

Take a look here to read the short little AP note that made The Dallas Morning News last week.

To hear directly from one of these men and to revisit my previous posts go here.

Way to go, Gerald! Your trips to Austin certainly paid off!
