This photo provided by the Greene County Sheriff's Department shows Jeffrey Allen Dickson. Dickson was found guilty of child kidnapping, forcible rape and forcible sodomy in the April 5, 2008 attack on a 7-year-old girl. But new evidence unearthed by Dickson's state-appointed appeals court lawyer and reviewed as part of a five-month Associated Press investigation suggests that a rush to judgment could have caused police and prosecutors to target the wrong man. He is scheduled to argue his appeal on Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012, in Springfield, Mo. (AP Photo/Greene County Sheriff's Department via The News-Leader)
