Dennis Maher, then a 23-year-old Army sergeant, was stopped and questioned by police on the night that a rape occurred in his town of Lowell. Although no biological evidence linked him, he was convicted of two rapes. The New England Innocence Project helped secure DNA testing in his case and he was proven innocent. He is now a mechanic for a waste management company, has recently married and has two young children.
Incarcerated for 19 years.
