Description

A man, who was wrongly imprisoned, was freed from prison after a DNA test revealed he wasn't the murderer. Though, he was freed the murder conviction has never been cleared from his record. This makes him unable to get a job and live a normal life. The prosecutor and the court can legally choose to never clear his name because it is not a legal requirement.
