A man who spent nearly a quarter of century in prison after being convicted of rape and murder of a woman in Chicago before DNA testing linked a serial rapist to the crime has filed a wrongful conviction lawsuit.
CHICAGO (AP) — A man who spent nearly a quarter century in prison after being convicted of rape and murder before DNA testing prompted authorities to drop the charges has filed a lawsuit that alleges he was coerced by Chicago police detectives into confessing.
Nevest Coleman's wrongful conviction lawsuit comes three months after he and co-defendant Darryl Fulton were released from prison. Fulton has already filed a similar lawsuit.
Coleman and Fulton were convicted in the 1994 slaying of a 20-year-old woman whose body was found in the basement of a home on Chicago's South Side where Coleman lived.
Both he and Fulton confessed but quickly recanted their confessions.
After DNA testing linked the crime to a serial rapist, the two men were released from prison in November.
