Crime: Hillsborough County rape, kidnapping, robbery, attempted robbery, burglary, aggravated assault. Time served: 24 years Year released: 2006 Details: In 1981, three men forced their way into a Tampa home and robbed it. As they left, they forced a 38-year-old woman and 12-year-old girl into their car. The suspect with the shotgun raped them, and the victims were left tied to trees. All five victims identified Crotzer as the rapist and robber with the shotgun. FDLE found semen inside the woman but didn't test it. In 2003, Crotzer won the right to test DNA found inside the adult woman. It proved he was innocent.
