In addition to 10 years of wrongful incarceration, James Waller spent 13 years on parole for allegedly raping a young boy who lived in his apartment development. As a condition of his parole, he was not allowed to have any contact with children. Even while volunteering through his church group to serve food to homeless people, Waller had to ask another volunteer to serve the children. He was finally vindicated on March 9 when, as the result of exculpatory DNA testing, the Texas governor officially pardoned him.
Incarcerated for 10 years.
