Verdict overturned for sailor imprisoned for eight years
By: The Associated Press  

On Nov. 3, 2003, Roynes Dural was convicted on sexual assault charges after a jury trial and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
HONOLULU — The Hawaii Innocence Project says a former U.S. Navy sailor’s statutory rape conviction has been overturned.

The University of Hawaii's law school, where the innocence project is located, announced Friday that a state Supreme Court ruling officially sets aside the conviction of Roynes Dural.

Project co-director Ken Lawson says Dural spent eight years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit.

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.
