Two Men Serving Time Exonerated and ReleasedBy Law Offices of Okabe & Haushalter October 23, 2013
Two men serving felony sentences were recently released after evidence from another case exonerated the men of the charges they had been convicted of. The first case involved a murder charge from 1990. L.B. was convicted of fatally shooting a man and was serving an 82-year prison sentence. He had been behind bars for the last 20 years for a murder he did not commit. The second exonerated man had been imprisoned for 11 years after being convicted of sexually assaulting a woman in 2002. In that incident, the man was accused of assaulting a woman in a local court house. Reports did not elaborated on the details of the recent case which led to information exonerating the two men but prosecutors subsequently dropped the charges against the men resulting in their release.
