Cincinnati law school innocence project has first case

A University of Cincinnati law school project designed to help people wrongfully committed of a crime has its first case. The law school students have taken on the case of Chris Bennett of New Paris. He's serving a nine-year sentence for vehicular homicide. He says he lost his memory in a car accident that killed another man in 2001, but now he claims he remembers that he was a passenger in the car, not the driver. The program re-examines old evidence using new technology. It's one of several dozen in the nation. Students also are looking at other cases. They say blood and hair samples could show that Bennett was in the passenger's seat.
