Philadelphia man acquitted of ’91 murder in less than an hour after retrial Innocence Project

Philadelphia man acquitted of ’91 murder in less than an hour after retrial Innocence Project – “We are extremely relieved that this very long nightmare is finally over for Mr. Wright and his family. DNA testing proved not only that Mr. Wright is absolutely innocent but also that law enforcement fabricated evidence against him,” said Peter Neufeld, Co-Director of the Innocence Project, which is affiliated with Cardozo School of Law. “But it’s outrageous that he has been forced to endure a retrial to gain his freedom after DNA testing already proved his innocence. This case raises many serious questions, and Philadelphians should be deeply concerned about the manner in which law enforcement handled this case and should demand a review of three police detectives responsible for Mr. Wright’s wrongful conviction.”
