Ryan Out – Guest Post

ryanThe clerk at my chambers – Jane Alexander – has been one of those over the years trying to secure the release of a young man wrongly convicted of murder, and has finally succeeded. She writes:

Justice has finally been served – Ryan Ferguson from Missouri, USA, has been freed from prison after serving 9½ years for a murder he had nothing to do with. The story is rife with corruption and misconduct; his conviction was unanimously vacated after the Court found that the prosecutor (now a Judge) withheld crucial exculpatory evidence during his 2005 trial. Ryan was sentenced to 40 years in prison for the murder.  It has taken more than 10 appeals for a Court to finally see sense and have the courage to right this wrong!
