Anthony Capozzi case on DatelineNBC tonight

Anthony Capozzi spent 21 years in New York prison for two rapes he didn’t commit before DNA testing proved his innocence and pointed to the real perpetrator – a man named Altemio Sanchez who has since pled guilty to committing at least three area murders. Although DNA tests on evidence from several area rapes match Sanchez, including those of which Capozzi was wrongfully convicted, Sanchez could not be charged because the statute of limitations had run out. Sanchez was sentenced this month to 75 years to life for the three murders.

Tonight at 10 p.m. ET on NBC, Dateline profiles the investigation that led Sanchez’s arrest and Capozzi’s exoneration.
