[video] Man Cleared of Murder After 25 Years in Prison ( Evidence Proved He Was in Disney World)

When I hear tragic stories such as this one, I am perplexed as to why the prosecutors in these cases are never brought up on serious criminal charges if they are guilty of mishandling of evidence in order to secure a conviction. This man lost a major portion of his adult life and even if he is awarded a few million he will never get his life back.

Fleming was about to be eligible for parole later this year, but Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson got involved and decided to speed up the process, announcing his intentions to dismiss the charges “in the interest of justice,” the Post notes.

It’s good news, but his lawyers are not especially impressed, given the years lost in the debacle. “Mr. Fleming is very happy that this day has come, but it’s too little, too late,” Koss said. “The man suffered for almost 25 years for a crime he didn’t commit.”
