Steven Chaney

Chaney was declared innocent by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals in December 2018 after serving 28 years in prison for a 1987 murder. Following his case, the Texas Forensic Science Commission recommended a moratorium on bite-mark analysis, which was used in Chaney’s conviction. He was initially released on bond and granted partial relief in 2015.
