3 Men Wrongfully Jailed For Murder Are Freed After 36 Years

After serving 36 years in prison for a murder prosecutors say didn’t commit, these three men will be soon be free.

It followed a hearing in a Baltimore City Circuit Court a few days ago.

The three men, Alfred Chestnut, Ransom Watkins, and Andrew Stewart, were arrested on Thanksgiving Day in 1983 and convicted for the murder of a 14-year-old Baltimore teenager, according to a news release.

Mosby’s office says “detectives targeted the three men, all 16-year-old Black boys, using coaching and coercion of other teenage witnesses to make their case. Material Brady evidence that could have freed the young men was kept from the defense and jury.”
