Man freed after being wrongly imprisoned for 27 years - March 18th 2009, 01:33 PM

A British man, Sean Hodgson has been freed after spending 27 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.

He is one of the longest-serving victims of a miscarriage of justice in the UK.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/h...re/7950303.stm

He confessed to killing this young woman, but apparently was mentally ill when he confessed. They're saying that DNA evidence proves that he could not have killed her.

At the trial his defense said that he was a pathalogical liar and that all his confessions were untrue. But yeah, he was still convicted.

I can't even imagine being imprisoned for 27 years for something i didn't do, however he did admit to it, so that throws a bit of a spanner in the works.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..
