Texas exoneree reunites with fiance in Atlanta

When Ronnie Taylor was released last month after DNA tests proved he didn’t commit the rape for which he served 12 years in prison, he had devoted parents and a fiancé waiting for him. This month, he moved from Texas to Atlanta, Georgia, to reunite with his fiancé Jeanette Brown, who stood by him for more than a decade while he was wrongfully incarcerated.

“When you’re in a place like that, it’s important that somebody’s in your corner, keep in touch with you, and keep you optimistic,” Brown said of her relationship with Taylor.

Taylor was convicted based on eyewitness misidentification and faulty testing by the troubled Houston Police Department Crime Lab, and he said he knows he wasn’t the only innocent person in Texas prison.
