After 23 Years In Prison, Man Who Was Wrongly Convicted For Murder Regains Freedom (Photo)

Written by

 

A Kansas native, Lamonte McIntyre who was wrongly convicted of a double murder finally regained freedom after spending more than half of his life behind bars.

The 41-year-old man hugged his mother for the first time as a free man in 23 years on Friday with joy all over his face.

McIntyre who was serving two life sentence spoke for the first time and his first words were: “It’s nice outside.”

He was originally convicted at the age of 17 on the testimony of witnesses who later recanted. Prosecutors presented no physical evidence or motive to tie him to the 1994 murders.

A judge was reconsidering the case in court hearings that were scheduled to last into next week, when the new prosecutor in the case said in a news release that new information cast doubt on witness identification of McIntyre as the killer, and that a jury might have not convicted him.

“In light of information learned by my office since I began in January,” Wyandotte County District Attorney Mark Dupree said:

“my office is requesting the Court find that manifest injustice exists.”

The original investigators of the daytime shooting never issued search warrants nor discovered a link between McIntyre and the victims, according to The Washington Post. He was arrested after less than 20 minutes of interviews.

“The investigation was hasty and superficial,” said the Midwest Innocence Project, which helped free McIntyre.

McIntyre has always maintained his innocence.

His mother, Rose McIntyre who was present when he was arrested decades ago, on Friday thanked “everybody who never gave up on my son,” according to the Kansas City Star, which reported that there were many tears in the courtroom when the man was finally freed.

He (the judge) said:

‘You’re free.’ I almost hit the floor,” The Star quoted Rose McIntyre as saying. “I want him to feel the sunlight.”

    I in addition to my friends were actually viewing the excellent recommendations located on your web page and then the sudden I got a horrible suspicion I never thanked the blog owner for those tips. All the young men are actually so warmed to read through all of them and have simply been having fun with these things. Thank you for genuinely well kind and for making a decision on variety of wonderful topics most people are really desperate to know about. My honest regret for not expressing appreciation to you earlier.

    Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your website in internet explorer, would check this… IE still is the market leader and a good portion of people will miss your fantastic writing because of this problem.

    "Thanks for your article. I would like to remark that the first thing you will need to do is check if you really need fixing credit. To do that you will have to get your hands on a duplicate of your credit file. That should really not be difficult, because the government makes it necessary that you are allowed to have one cost-free copy of your own credit report annually. You just have to consult the right people today. You can either look at website for that Federal Trade Commission or maybe contact one of the main credit agencies specifically."
