In June of 1982 a 12 year old female, who we will call Tanya Savage told police she had been kidnapped an raped.  The suspect Tanya identified was Henry "Hank" Houghton.  Tanya said at one point during the crime, she struck Hank in the face with a beer bottle, causing a 2 inch gash in his face.  Tanya stated Hank's knife touch her throat twice, yet there were no marks.  Everyone in the town stated Hank was framed and several people wrote letters expressing this.  There was even a letter expressing how sorry someone was that Hank was in jail.  Who was the author of the sorrowful letter?  Police had no physical evidence linking Hank to the crime and also no physical evidence of a rape.  So why has Hank been in prison for almost 30 years?  Join us this Wednesday at 6 PM EST as we discuss the Henry Houghton Case.  Our guest will be wrongfully convicted advocate Dick Blanchard.
