Tune in to CBS’s “60 Minutes” on Sunday, May 4 to learn more about the Innocence Project of Texas’s involvement in securing the release of James Lee Woodard, who served more than 27 years in prison for a Dallas County murder that he has always maintained he did not commit. Woodard’s release came about as a result of more than 1000 man hours spent by IPOT and the Dallas County District Attorney’s office investigating his claim of actual innocence. His story will be told in a compelling segment about the efforts of Dallas County’s Conviction Integrity Unit and its collaboration with the Innocence Project of Texas to review more than 400 cases where post-conviction DNA testing was denied by previous Dallas D.A. Administrations.
