Man cleared after 26 years in prison

Alton Logan was released earlier this year after spending 26 years in prison for a killing another man confessed to. He had been waiting since then to see whether prosecutors would retry him. Thursday morning, charges were formally dropped and Judge James Schreier vacated Logan’s conviction for killing security guard Lloyd Wickliffe while robbing a McDonald’s in 1982.
“I’ve been telling everyone for the last 26 years I didn’t do it and finally they did the right thing,” Logan said afterward, tears welling in his eyes.
Logan said he wanted an apology from Mayor Daley, who was state’s attorney when he was convicted in the early 1980s. More... Prisoner Pen Pals - Discount Cigarettes - Discount Magazine Subscriptions for Prisoners
