    MOTION FOR NEW TRIAL FILED FOR WYOMING MAN — Recent DNA testing likely to prove his innocence –

    Today attorneys for the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center (RMIC) filed a motion in Wyoming’s First District Court on behalf of Andrew Johnson, a man convicted of sexual assault and aggravated burglary over 23 years ago. Initial tests on the newly found DNA evidence confirm his innocence.

    Mr. Johnson was arrested for first-degree sexual assault and aggravated burglary in June of 1989. Mr. Johnson has maintained his innocence throughout his trial and has continued to do so during his over 23 years spent in a Wyoming state prison.

    RMIC Managing Attorney, and co-counsel on the case, Elizabeth Fasse stated, “The Rocky Mountain Innocence Center has been working on Andrew’s case for over 10 years. We are confident the Wyoming judicial system will do the right thing and exonerate Andrew.”

    The Rocky Mountain Innocence Project worked to change Wyoming law, to allow for DNA testing and appeals based on that . . .
