RT.com reports that 46-year-old Luis Vargas has been exonerated after serving 16 years in prison on rape and sexual assault charges.
DNA tests not only conclusively cleared Vargas of all charges, but also showed that the notorious “Teardrop Rapist” – an unknown man wanted for 39 sexual crimes in Los Angeles – was responsible for the rape and assaults against three females in which Vargas was convicted for.
Vargas was sentenced to 55 years imprisonment in 1999.
