Innocent convict's Golf Course paintings get him freed after 27 years

Valentino Dixon's beautiful drawings of golf courses led to the overturning of his wrongful conviction after 27 years in New York Prison. The paintings made in prison by Dixon, who was wrongfully convicted for shooting 17-year-old Torriano Jackson in August 1991, caught the eye of a golf magazine which got his case re-investigated. The real killer was also arrested after he confessed, leading to the release of Dixon.
