In Baltimore, three men who were wrongfully imprisoned in 1983 have walked free from prison after spending 36 years behind bars for a crime they did not commit. Alfred Chestnut, Ransom Watkins and Andrew Stewart were arrested and jailed on charges of shooting 14-year-old DeWitt Duckett in the hallway of Baltimore’s Harlem Park Junior High School allegedly because they wanted to steal his jacket. The three African-American teenagers always maintained their innocence. Now in their 50s, the three men were released Monday after a review of the case revealed multiple errors, including the fact that the state’s attorney lied about the evidence, and that the police pressured teenage witnesses.TOPICS:
