NEWARK, N.J., June 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company which operates lawsuitssettlementfunding.com, reported today that Lorenzo Montoya was wrongfully convicted of murder at the age of 14 and spent 13 years behind bars for a murder he didn't commit, and now he's suing the city of Denver and the Denver Police Department for $30 million.
According to CBS local in Denver, "Montoya's conviction was overturned two years ago after DNA evidence proved he didn't kill Denver teacher Emily Johnson in January 2000." Also according to the article, after the teacher's murder, Montoya was brought in by police for questioning. Despite Montoya's repeated claims that he did not do it and wasn't there, after the interrogation "Montoya agreed to plead guilty to a lesser charge of accessory after the fact. It's a felony that remains on his record." He was wrongfully convicted and spent 13 years and 7 months behind bars. Montoya's attorney has made statements indicating that part of the reason Montoya has now filed a lawsuit is because he wants to spur change.
