How Many Innocent People Are Still in Jail?

JusticeJon Burge and the Midnight Crew from Area Two tortured people to get confessions. Man freed after 23 years; alleged torture :: The SouthtownStar :: News

If the statute of limitations hadn't expired, there are something like 170 cases prosecutors believe could be successfully brought to trial. As it is, there will be little justice.

Some of these guys were sent to death row.
Cook County Judge Vincent Gaughan ordered Michael Tillman released Thursday. Prosecutors asked that charges be dropped because Tillman only confessed after detectives violated his civil rights.
I guess that's the PC way to say torture.

So how many of these guys are still in jail?
