The DA never admits that they were wrong and always cast doubt on the wrongfully convicted. I hope this man gets his $100M. If only he could sue and bankrupt the DA instead of the state

So he was involved . He stabbed the victim. He just didn't cut his throat. Stay away from the gangs kids. You wind up dead or in jail.
