Timothy Cole memorial statue revealed

Lubbock is getting its first look at a memorial for former Texas Tech student Timothy Cole on Thursday night.

Cole was wrongfully convicted of sexual assault, and maintained his innocence until he died in prison.

The governor exonerated him after his death back in 2009.

City leaders approved a statue to honor Cole last year. On Thursday night, the artist gave a presentation showing what it will look like.

The statue will be placed in a new park at 19th and University recently named in Cole's honor.
