Recently Exonerated Man Convicted of Serial Rape Was Originally Represented by Roy Black

Luis Diaz, who was convicted of serial rape in 1980, was freed yesterday after DNA evidence cleared him of two of the attacks, casting doubt on the other three convictions.

According to the article, Roy Black said he was "thrilled" by the result.

Black issued the following statement: "That Luis' innocence has finally been admitted is cause for celebration, but nothing can erase the 26 years he spent in prison, in horrible condition, separated from his family."
