American man who was Wrongfully convicted man regain his freedom after 32 years in jail


Andrew Leander Wilson first words as he walked out of jail haven been wrongfully convicted "I've been inside for 32 years, three months and 14 days. It's been that long". He went in at the age of 30 when he was convicted of murder and now at 62 he is a free man because evidence had come to light that the prosecution withheld in the case all those years ago.




Superior Court Judge Laura Priver ruled Wilson had been deprived of his constitutional rights to a fair trial, vacating his conviction and ordering his immediate release.
His attorneys and students from the Loyola Law School Project for the Innocent worked to bring the new information to light. The information they found showed the prosecution had withheld information during the murder trial.
Wilson had maintained his innocence since the day he was arrested for the stabbing death of a 21-year-old man in 1984. The man was sleeping in his truck when he was fatally stabbed. His girlfriend Saladena Bishop was also in the truck. Wilson's attorneys said the prosecution withheld key pieces of evidence concerning the main witness.

He'll now have the chance to see his 96-years old  mother who had long fought for her son's release from her home in Missouri.
