DNA exonerates man of shocking rape after 37 years in prison

When a set of allegations is explosive enough, the police are under immense pressure to solve the crime. That can lead to corners being cut, such as targeting the most likely suspect to the exclusion of all others.

When the allegations are especially shocking, the risk of a false conviction seems to increase.
