‹For the second time in a week, the Harris County DA's office is announcing they are taking steps to free a wrongly convicted inmate. Michael Anthony Green, 45, has served 27 years for a sexual assault prosecutors are now convinced he did not commit, thanks to DNA evidence. It's believed to be a record time behind bars for a Texas inmate wrongly imprisoned. First Assistant DA Jim Leitner was pretty bold in the announcement: "The evidence in this case had been sitting in the District Clerk's Office for 27 years, and no one had taken the initiative to do anything with it in the past," Leitner said. "The difference now is that you've got the Post Conviction Review Section looking into it -- and that made all the difference in the case of Mr. Green." Facebook page that Thursday morning attorneys and the judge agreed Green was "too upset" to be freed, and the hearing was re-set for Friday.
