Innocent Man, Horace Roberts, Freed After 20 Years In California Prison

It’s like every week or two, there’s an innocent Black man who is freed from prison after serving decades for things they didn’t do. The latest is Horace Roberts who spent 20 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.  In 2017, the California Innocence Project conducted DNA testing of several pieces of crime scene evidence.  The DNA and additional investigation revealed the true perpetrators and exonerated Roberts.  He was declared factually innocent yesterday on October 15, 2018.

Watch here to see how Richard D. Philips, the nation’s longest-serving exoneree, was freed after spending 45 years in prison.
