Three people testified that he was asleep at home when the rape occurred.


The fingerprints at the scene were not a match.


He is several inches shorter than the sole witness's description of the suspect and the witness didn't point to him as the suspect in two photo line ups.


But he was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for a 1982 rape and stabbing.
