NEW YORK, Oct. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reported today that they are dedicated to aiding victims of wrongful imprisonment now more than ever with public awareness growing on these cases. According to NY Daily News, recently an ex-NYPD detective, Louis Scarcella, went under oath in a Brooklyn court to address "issues that have led prosecutors to review more than 70 old homicides he had handled" in the past. In one such case, Rosean Hargrave, 40 years old, has been incarcerated for almost 23 years and is asking a judge to throw out his conviction regarding the killing of a correction officer in 1991. Multiple wrongful conviction cases involving Scarcella have already been dismissed in the interest of justice.
During the recent trial, Louis Scarcella was dodging blame, according to NY Daily News. There are many other cases, including the 70 old cases of Scarcella's, where wrongful imprisonment remains in question. There are organizations that have been founded specifically to aid those who have been wrongfully convicted, including the Innocence Project. It's a non-profit legal clinic, and according to their website, "The Innocence Project is a national litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted individuals through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice." In light of rather recent scientific discoveries and improvements when it comes to DNA testing, it has been a major factor in changing the way the criminal justice system works. It has, in cases, provided scientific proof that innocent people have been convicted for crimes they did not commit. In light of the growing public awareness surrounding wrongful imprisonments, Legal-Bay seeks to support victims by regaining their freedom and are once again proudly pronouncing their strong dedication to aiding victims in these types of cases with providing them with the needed financial assistance to integrate back into society.
Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay commented, "It is abundantly clear with the recent cases involving gross police corruption and prosecutorial misconduct in New York City and Detective Louis Scarcella, defendants have been convicted and given virtual life sentences for crimes that they did not commit. With the advent of DNA testing, prosecutors from New York to California should be pursuing the release of potentially innocent victims with the same vigor that their offices prosecuted them. This is true justice and in-line with the values of the U.S. Constitution. Unfortunately, the millions of dollars in settlements that NY has doled out already will not give these victims their lost years. However, this is not enough, the American public needs to take a more active stance in their public awareness of these gross injustices and hold prosecutors and detectives more accountable."
Here are just some of the cases that Legal-Bay has funded recently and/or accepted applications on: Wrongfully Imprisoned for murder for 15 years (2 Co-Defendants in New York (NY) who were sentenced to Attica Upstate NY Prison), Police Brutality Case in Detroit, Michigan where family member Suspect was shot and killed, Inmates subject to unsafe prison conditions and outside work crews who were seriously injured in Tennessee and Indiana (prison injury lawsuit funding cases), Women Prison Rape Cases and Sexual Misconduct by Correction Officers in Wisconsin, Police Brutality Case where a New York/New Jersey Port Authority Police Officer senselessly beat an innocent man in Manhattan, and Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, and Brooklyn, New York young men who were falsely arrested on Gun, Knife, and Weapon Charges who were then detained for years on Rikers Island, New York's City/County Jail.
