'Wrongly' convicted man freed after 45 years

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A US man has been freed from jail after "wrongly" serving nearly 50 years in jail for the rape and kidnap of a nurse.

Wilbert Jones has walked free from prison after a judge overturned his conviction for the crime, which took place in Louisiana in 1971.

He thanked God for his freedom and for his loyal family, who never gave up hope, as he left the prison in Baton Rouge where he had been moved in preparation for his release.

He also hugged his legal team at the Innocence Project New Orleans, the charity that had worked for more than a decade to get him out of jail.
