# - Refers to the chronological order in which the defendants were exonerated.
State - Place of capital conviction
Years Between - The difference between the year of exoneration and the year of capital conviction
Reason - Normally, when a conviction is overturned by an appellate court, the state has the option of re-trying the defendant. If the state does not seek a re-trial, charges are dismissed. If a re-trial occurs and the defendant is found not guilty, the case is listed as an acquittal.
DNA evidence - refers to whether DNA evidence played a major role in exonerating ("yes") the defendant or not ("no").
