• The American got excuse after 27 years
John Bunn (John Bunn) spent 17 years in prison on false charges. Freed from prison, the man decided to prove that the offense with which he was charged, he did not commit. In the end he succeeded. When a Banna cleared of all charges, he burst into tears in the courtroom.
In 1991, in New York, there was an attack on the police. Rolando officer was killed, and Robert Kroson - wounded. He was the only witness in the case. The second-degree murder accused John Bunn, who at the time was only 14 years old and his friend.
In prison, John spent 17 years until in 2009 did not come out on parole. All the time in prison and ten years after his release from prison Bunn was trying to prove his innocence. After his release, he even founded an organization for the protection of prisoners.
The case Banna was reopened only in 2016. And then it turned out that in fact is full of inconsistencies. The witness said that the attackers were white, and Bunn and his friend - a dark-skinned; prints at the crime scene did not match with the fingerprints of suspects. A detective Louis Skarchella just rigged evidence in the case. As a result, the court acquitted Banna and acquitted him of all charges. 41-year-old burst into tears in the courtroom.
"I want to thank you, Your Honor, because 27 years I have been fighting for his life", - said Bunn.
Then the man turned to the audience: "I want you to know that the condemned and imprisoned the wrong person."
Bunn could no longer hold back the emotion, walked over to the judge, he grabbed her arms and buried his face in it.
"You were only 14 years old, this should not have happened," - said the judge.
On the other Banna, who stayed in prison 24 years old, is also cleared of all charges. A case of murder, the detective who led Louis Skarchella will be reviewed.
