We are in Polk County Florida today to hold a press conference with the 10th Judicial Circuit Public Defender. At this event, we will discuss the the Bain case and new DNA test results that prove that sperm left on the child victim’s underwear during the rape came from someone other than James Bain.
This case is remarkable because James was convicted in 1974 and has been trying to get DNA testing for almost a decade. He has been wrongfully incarcerated longer than any of the other 245 DNA exonerees were.
The press conference will take place today, December 10, at 2:00 PM at North Door of the Polk County Courthouse in Bartow, FL. Members of James Bain’s family will also be in attendance. So if you are in the area and would like to come by and support the efforts of IPF, stop by and say hello.
In the meantime, let’s get the word out about this case so that we can get James home by Christmas.
