Craig Watkins Gets His 60 Minutes of Fame This Sunday
Just yesterday, during our weekly staff meeting at Unfair Park HQ, we were wondering when 60 Minutes was going to run its profile of Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins. Turns out, you can set your DVR to this very Sunday, when former KXAS and WFAA reporter Scott Pelley offers up a story titled "Exonerated." Says the teaser: "The Dallas County District Attorney’s office and the Innocence Project of Texas have joined forces to re-examine cases and have freed several inmates so far, including James Woodard, who spent 27 years in jail." If nothing else, good timing. --Robert Wilonsky
