The Crime

charge with Aggravated Robbery Aggravated Kidnapping

Patrick Waller spent nearly 16 years in Texas prisons for a crime he didn’t commit before DNA testing proved his innocence in 2008. He was wrongfully convicted of robbery and kidnapping in 1992 after four people misidentified him in photo and in-person lineups.

Fact
The Crime
On March 25, 1992, a Dallas couple was abducted at gunpoint by two men. The men forced themselves into the couple’s car and had the couple drive the car to another neighborhood, forced them to withdraw $200 from an ATM, and later to an abandoned house, where the abductors tied them up and sexually assaulted the woman.

The men forced themselves into the couple’s car and had the couple drive the car to another neighborhood, forced them to withdraw $200 from an ATM, and later to an abandoned house, where the abductors tied them up and sexually assaulted the woman.

During the assault, another couple unexpectedly drove up to the abandoned house. One of the abductors forced the second couple into the house, also at gunpoint, forced them to remove their clothes and tied them up as well. The perpetrators soon fled the scene, however, when a school district security officer happened to drive by the house. According to the victims’ testimony, the two perpetrators drove away separately in the couples’ two vehicles.

Recent DNA tests proved Waller’s innocence and led investigators to two other men, who have both now admitted to their roles in the crime. Waller, who is represented by Dallas attorney Gary Udashen, is the 19th person cleared by DNA testing in Dallas County. The Innocence Project of Texas has consulted on his case.
