The AG’s office declined to recharge Alfred Swinton after his 1991 conviction fell apart due to DNA “touch” analysis of the victim and a bitemark expert who recanted his trial testimony. The praise for the AG in this first article contradicts the objections the state presented to Swinton’s post conviction DNA testing during years of appeal.

In 2001, Swinton’s appellate attorney states that he is innocent. The state’s “top” forensic dentist is also mentioned.
