Jury deliberating case of wrongfully convicted man

A Harris County jury continues deliberating a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed against the City of Houston by a man wrongly sent to prison for a rape he did not commit. George Rodriguez's suit blames the city and the Houston Police Department in part for his wrongful kidnapping and sexual assault conviction in 1987.

Rodriguez spent 17 years in prison until DNA testing exonerated him. The city blamed Rodriguez's wrongful conviction on a crime lab employee the city accuses of lying.
