Reports from the US say an Illinois man who spent nearly 25 years in prison for rape has had his conviction overturned.

54 year old William Carini was convicted in 1992 of a sexual assault against a woman who was sleeping in her car on the side of a road.

Authorities re-examining his case said tests show there was no physical evidence linking him to the crime.

Carini will continue to serve a life sentence, however, for the murder of his uncle and a young woman.

Carini's case is the seventh overturned conviction in Lake County since 2010 with four of those having been for murder and three for rape.
