(Wilmington, DE) -- A Delaware man wrongfully imprisoned decades ago is finally free. Elmer Daniels was released from prison yesterday after spending nearly 40 years behind bars. He was convicted in 1980 of raping a 15-year-old girl in Wilmington after an FBI agent testified at the trial. ABC 6 reports that hair evidence linked the then 18-year-old to the assault. Earlier this year, officials concluded that the agent's testimony about hair evidence in the case was invalid. Daniel's release came one day after his 57th birthday.
