On January 6th, 1990, a 21 year old woman was working at a convenience store in Covington, Georgia. At around 4am, this woman, who we'll refer to as "BT," was abducted, forced into a truck, and sexually assaulted until she managed to escape 90 minutes later. Despite BT’s insistence that she hadn’t known the perpetrator, police ultimately persuaded her to believe a story that her ex-boyfriend Ronald Jacobsen was her attacker. There was no physical or forensic evidence pointing to Ron who was out of the state at the time with his pregnant fiancee and her family. Nevertheless, Ronald was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. In 2017, the Innocence Project used DNA evidence to exclude him from the possible list of assailants, and it took until 2021 for the state to finally acknowledge it.
