But he is still fighting to clear his name.</p> <p>"I've been vindicated," he told me in an interview last week, "but not yet exonerated." Franklin served 21 years in prison &#8212; a harrowing 7,700 days &#8212; of a life sentence after he was convicted of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in 1995. But he steadfastly maintained his innocence, studied law in the prison library and won a reversal of his conviction last spring. In December, a jury acquitted him after a second criminal trial.<p>Updated: Wed Feb 22, 2017</p> 417c887478fc38f6f61f7cd4fdeea553 Bumps in the Road: Trump vs. Obama for 02/15/2017 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/02/17/bumps-in-the-road-trump-vs-obama Wed, 15 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>The resignation of national security advisor Michael Flynn has the anti-Trump media declaring the new administration a "mess," in "turmoil" and thrown into "chaos."</p> <p>Funny, these same Chicken Littles barely shrugged their shoulders during the turmoil-laden first 100 days of Barack Obama's first term.
