U.S. Senator Carl Levin and several other "high profile" individuals are said to be supporting the clemency application of Thomas Cress, who claims he was wrongly convicted of murder more than two decades ago. A serial killer has confessed to the crime and passed a lie detector test. So, as former witnesses as recanting their own testimony, the detective and chief of police are now convinced of Cress' innocence and there is even a YouTube video out. The Michigan parole board will be holding a hearing to consider the request (for commutation of his life sentence). See story here.
