Ricardo Rachell poses for a portrait, Dec. 30, 2008 in Houston. In the background is first cousin Anthony Sims. In 2003, Ricardo Rachell, who was severely disfigured by a shotgun blast to the face in 1992, was wrongly convicted in the sexual assault of an 8-year-old in Houston. DNA testing, however, exonerated Rachell early this month of the crime and he was set free. This week, he got some more good news thanks to Congressman Al Green who has arranged for world-renowned Texas surgeon Dr. Joseph Agris to rebuild Rachell's face for free. (image by Eric Kayne)
