Two Florida Men Freed After 42 Years in Prison for a Murder They Didn’t Commit

Clifford Williams and Hubert Myers were convicted of murdering a woman while they were at a party in Jacksonville, Florida. Two women were shot in a nearby apartment, one of them fatally. The men were quickly arrested, convicted and sentenced to life in prison after a 2-day trial.

The state of Florida has recently dropped all charges and freed them.

  2. Thanks for these stories. We all need to be reminded regularly how disastrous our justice system can be. 42 years wrongful imprisonment? These stories are so scary. Kudos to you and other attorneys that work to right these wrongs.
