“A Brooklyn man who spent the last 24 years behind bars walked free Friday after a judge tossed out the indictment that put him there.
Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Sharen Hudson ordered Shawn Williams’ case dismissed, and his immediate release, after prosecutors joined a defense motion asking the jurist to set aside Williams’ conviction and vacate the original indictment.
Williams’ is the 14th overturned conviction linked to retired NYPD Detective Louis Scarcella, a once-renowned officer who in recent years has faced allegations of misconduct by a number of since-freed people he put away.
“I would like to thank my lawyers for helping me achieve this great victory today,” Williams, 41, said outside court. “After 20-something years incarcerated, I finally get the opportunity to relive my life as a free man. It was a long and hard-fought battle. I was sent to prison for a crime I didn’t commit. My childhood friend was murdered, and I was framed for it.””*
