A year out of prison, Earl Washington Jr. is full of plans. He's getting married in May. He's studying for his GED while working full time as a maintenance man. And he's working to get a driver's license so that he can be a truck driver one day. Washington, mildly retarded with an IQ of 69, was released from prison on Feb. 12, 2001, after DNA tests cleared him of a 1982 rape and murder to which he had confessed. He still had to finish serving time for an unrelated assault.

"I'm glad to be home," said a grinning Earl Washington Jr., 40, who had been in prison since 1983. "I'm nervous, not bitter." Largely illiterate and with an IQ of 69, Washington confessed to the 1982 rape and slaying of Rebecca Lynn Williams, though no fingerprints or biological evidence tied him to the crime.

Davis and the man he replaces Oct. 1, Donald R. Beall, are as similar as peas in a pod both personally and professionally, say those who know them.
