Three men incarcerated for 36 years in Maryland were exonerated Monday in the slaying of a Baltimore Finally Free | 3 Men Exonerated After Spending 36 Years In Jail For 14-Year-Old's Murder In Baltimor 3 Baltimore Men Freed From Prison After 36 Years - Продолжительность: 3

Three men falsely convicted of murder in the US state of Maryland have been set free after 36 years in prison . Alfred Chestnut, Andrew Stewart and Ransom Watkins had been sentenced to life in 1984 for killing a 14-year-old boy a year earlier. They were freed in Baltimore on Monday after a judge

The men were teens when they were arrested on Thanksgiving Day in 1983, charged with fatally shooting DeWitt Duckett, 14, in the neck while stealing his Georgetown jacket as he walked to school. The suspects were convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

The Baltimore Conviction Integrity Unit reopened the case last year after Chestnut obtained sealed documents through a public records request that revealed prosecutors had hidden evidence pointing to another teen — who was fatally shot almost 20 years later.

Investigators quickly determined that witnesses had failed to identify the men in a lineup and had been coerced into altering their testimony.

"Today’s exonerations aren’t a victory," Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby said after the hearing. "Three men had 36 years of their life stolen when they were just 16. There is no way we can ever repair the damage done. Time for all of us to own up to our role in locking innocent men behind bars."

Mosby said she will fight for compensation for the men. Last month, Maryland approved payouts totaling $9 million for five men wrongly imprisoned for a combined total of 120 years. A man who had served 38 years was given $3 million.

"Police corruption and prosecutorial misconduct have cost Alfred Chestnut, Ransom Watkins and Andrew Stewart 36 stolen years," Mosby said. "They deserve support and compensation to start over. I will fight for it."
