In 2001 Dr. Harry E. Walkup, Jr. was convicted for second-degree arson. Last year, Judge Rowe reversed, and vacated his conviction.

A vacated judgment makes a previous legal judgment legally void. A vacated judgment is usually the result of the judgment of an appellate court, which overturns, reverses, or sets aside the judgment of a lower court. An appellate court may also vacate its own decisions.
A trial court may have the power under certain circumstances, usually involving fraud or lack of jurisdiction over the parties to a case, to vacate its own judgments.
A vacated judgment may free the parties to civil litigation to re-litigate the issues subject to the vacated judgment.--Wikipedia

  1. How about a copy of the reversal order. Enquiring minds want to know!
