Advocating on behalf of the wrongfully convicted
Innocence groups found support through TrueAllele's ability to interpret DNA mixtures in post-conviction cases. The Indiana Innocence Project and Cybergenetics worked to help exonerate Darryl Pinkins, who was cleared of all charges in April 2016.
"After twenty-four years in prison for a rape he did not commit, Darryl Pinkins will cherish time with family over the holiday season. He counts among his blessings the pro bono work of TrueAllele technology in deciphering the forensic mixtures from a 1989 sexual assault crime committed by five men. While co-defendant Roosevelt Glenn has been out of prison the past few years, he also gives thanks for the scientific efforts which will finally clear his name."
