"Floyd Bledsoe was convicted of a murder he did not commit. His brother betrayed him; he spent 16 years in prison. DNA testing and his brother’s suicide note helped get him exonerated.

...

The Paul E. Wilson Project for Innocence & Post Conviction Remedies at the University of Kansas took up Floyd’s case in 2007. 

...

By October of 2015, Floyd had spent most of 16 years looking up at prison ceilings. And on this planet of more than 7.5 billion people, only a few, including lawyers Alice Craig from the University of Kansas and Ney of Wichita, were still trying to treat him decently."
