NEWARK, N.J., March 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company which operates lawsuitssettlementfunding.com, reported today that a wrongfully convicted Bronx inmate has recently been freed after spending half his life in prison for a crime he always insisted he did not commit. Considering the fact that he had 13 alibi witnesses from the start who "could prove he was in Florida at the time of the 1996 murder," according to the NY Post, a Bronx judge released him after prosecutors determined that murder-alibi evidence needed to be reinvestigated.
Richard Rosario, now 40 years old, spent the last two decades in prison for the June 1996 broad-daylight murder of a 17-year-old boy. From the very start, Rosario had 13 alibi witnesses who said he was in Florida at the time of the murder. However, he was convicted "after two witnesses identified him from a police mug-shot book." The new Bronx DA, Darcel Clark, "agreed in a statement that Rosario never received a fair trial," according to the article in the NY Post.
Now, news sources indicate that the murder of the 17-year-old boy will continue to be investigated. Even though Rosario was freed, the charges against him will remain open until the investigation is completed, leaving the possibility open of him having to be retried in the case.
