Description

Herald-Tribune reporter Elizabeth Johnson spent nine months investigating a case in which Andre Bryant was convicted of robbing a deputy's wife and children at gunpoint in southwest Florida. In her report, Johnson writes about new evidence which suggests Bryant's innocence, including: the alleged confessions of another criminal for this crime, a victim's statement that she was told to choose Bryant from a photo lineup even though he did not look like the robber and a juror who says he was bullied into the guilty verdict. Now, Bryant's case is returning to court. The State Attorney's Office is conducting a review of the case, and the Innocence Project of Florida has agreed to defend Bryant.
