Innocence Project client Dean Cage was released from an Illinois prison after 10 p.m. last night, after serving nearly 12 years for a rape DNA now proves he didn’t commit. Cage was picked up by his mother and other relatives, and the group returned to their Chicago home to welcome Cage with a party in his honor.
Cage – along with members of his family, his Innocence Project lawyers, and local attorneys – will speak at a press conference today at 1:30 p.m. CST.
