"Dateline NBC" Discovers UC's Ohio Innocence Project

"Dateline NBC" devotes an hour Sunday (7 p.m., Chs 5, 2) to Melinda Elkins, who with the help of UC's Ohio Innocence Project freed her husband after seven years in prison in December 2005. Four UC Law School students, working with the UC-based Ohio Innocence Project, helped get Clarence Elkins' 1999 convictions for murder and raped overturned. Correspondent Sara James tells the story through Melinda Elkins, who now lives in Eaton in Preble County.

NBC's description of the hour: "Sara James reports on how one ordinary woman, Melinda Elkins, transformed herself into a would-be CSI investigator after her husband is accused of the unimaginable--the murder and rape of her mother, and the rape of her niece. In her relentless quest for justice, Elkin embarked on a dangerous mission in which she would take on police, prosecutors and the State of Ohio."
