"Freed by the Wisconsin Innocence Project"

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, the murder case against Evan Zimmerman has been dropped. As you may recall, this was Wisconsin Innocence Project's latest case.

Eau Claire County District Attorney Rich White asked a judge Friday to throw out the case mid-trial, saying he lacked the evidence to show "beyond a reasonable doubt" that Zimmerman had killed his former girlfriend. . .

After the short hearing was adjourned, Zimmerman, 58, grabbed his attorneys, Keith Belzer of La Crosse and Keith Findley, a UW-Madison law professor, in a tear-filled embrace. He later held up a white T-shirt declaring "Freed by the Wisconsin Innocence Project."
