Description

Jerome Hayes had alibis. He passed a lie detector test. The prosecutor said she believed someone else committed the crimes. A detective questioned why Hayes was still in jail. Yet Hayes stayed in a Jacksonville jail cell for 589 days only to be released with all charges dropped. The Florida Times-Union examined what happened in the case and what errors police, prosecutors and defense lawyers made. And as the paper reported on the Hayes case, it uncovered longstanding and wide-reaching records violations by the police. http://static.jacksonville.com/files/jeromehayescase/
