The conviction, based on the testimony of one witness who operated a nearby house of prostitution, had a prior manslaughter conviction, and was known to carry and use firearms, was overturned in 2011. Northern California Innocence Project Legal Director, Linda Starr, said, “Police purposely ignored and hid evidence that did not support their theory…The prosecution falsely denied that they granted their star witness a deal for his cooperation and failed to correct his lies at trial.
