After 28 Years, Man Still Claiming Innocence Released From Prison

In a new profile piece published by the The New York Times, Freddie Cox, a man convicted 28 years ago for second-degree murder,
is released from prison. Throughout his sentence he maintained his innocence, possibly delaying his parole.

The judge said there was no direct evidence in this case, how could this be. I trusted in that system, and they failed me.

In the video, Freddie said he could barely read and write going into prison.

I had to take prison and make it a university. Now I understand a lot of things I didn't understand back then, so I cannot be fooled no more...I couldn't allow being in prison for something I didn't do to cripple me.

Freddie was released from prison on October 15th, 2014.
