Judge Drops Murder Charges Against Man Who Spent 45 Years in Jail

;Ew)uL^_K0ro^wdGp+!

A man in the state of Michigan is free this week after being wrongly convicted of murder and spending 45 years in prison.

6pJ6h%0oQSdN

A judge has agreed to permanently drop the case against the man.

JCHbnzVx!1i

Richard Phillips is 71 years old. He said of his release that the criminal justice system "works – it just didn't work fast enough."

dZD8GSd^hj4

A lawyer for Michigan's Wayne County, Kym Worthy, said a new investigation by her office supported Phillips' claim that he had no role in the shooting death of Gregory Harris in 1971.

tsS2Fle6YV

She said a key witness lied during the trial in 1972.

3b_z__S77yKe

Worthy said, "There's nothing I can say to bring back 40 years of his life."

is~AL#C=ba|RvaXa&-c,

The case was re-opened at the urging of the Innocence Clinic, part of the University of Michigan's law school. It made the request after the co-defendant in the 1972 trial told the state's parole board in 2010 that Phillips was not involved in the crime.

M[Zl;^TI1N~sth-dT)p

The co-defendant also said the key witness who lied during the trial helped him kill Harris.

^;f|Uq#OC!B5SgpQ2,

The Innocence Clinic began working with Phillips on his case in 2014. He had been freed on bond since December 2017 and was expected to get a new trial this year. But the judge's ruling this week means he does not need a second trial.

2M=u|co0^dy

Judge Kevin Cox told Phillips, "You have seen the worst and best of the criminal justice system."

.v^=7bYUOFbTdr.%

Phillips likely will receive more than $2 million as part of Michigan's wrongful conviction law.

,,vK+ZG65P]h5

David Moran is director of the Innocence Clinic. He said no one in the United States has ever served more time in prison before being freed than Phillips.

hAtcGF]h0xs@LU!

"His freedom truly belongs to him again," Moran said.

5ZtAqng&skCkCG

When asked about his years in prison, Phillips told reporters, "I've never carried bitterness around, so I'm not a bitter man."

T|b&DQXU~b4IWXq9@7

As a free man, one of Phillips' goals is to reunite with his two children. They were just 2 and 4 years old when he went to prison in 1972. Phillips said he has not heard from them and does not know where they live.

iwZyi9SUsahb%em

Phillips has settled in an area just outside of Detroit. He attends a church where he shares his story with others.
