Dan Keller has left an Austin jail, a week after his wife was released – and 21 years after the pair were given a 48-year sentence for sexual assault during America's "Satanic panic" era. Fran Keller, 63, was released on bond last week after the Travis County district attorney agreed that the trial jury was probably swayed by the faulty testimony of an expert witness.

Attorney's weigh in


"It was a time of hysteria. And all over the nation it was happening," added Austin attorney J. Terry Weeks, who wrote an amicus brief supporting the overturning of the Kellers' conviction. In the early 1990s there were several cases made against day cares nationwide that children were forced to perform satanic rituals. Weeks said the hysteria was so widespread, jurors believed what he calls "the most outrageous claim" in the Keller case."
