Alan Gell had been in prison for eight years when the Raleigh News and Observer set out to prove his innocence. After exposing major oversights by the defense attorneys and finding flaws in witness testimony, the newspaper began publishing the series. As a result of Neff's story, Gell has won a retrial. He remains in prison, awaiting trial.
