Have you seen Conviction?

you should - it's excellent.

Conviction is the true story of Betty Ann Waters, whose brother was wrongly convicted of murder.  Betty Ann, with only a GED, put herself through college and law school to help free her brother.  Eventually, with help of Barry Scheck of the Innocence Project, Kenny Waters is freed.

Want to know who threw up most of the road blocks after the DNA evidence proved him innocent?  That would be one Martha Coakley, attorney general of Massachusetts, who ran against Scott Brown in the special election to fill Ted Kennedy's seat in the Senate.  Another reason not to like her...
