Death Row Man Set Free

After spending nearly 30 years on death row for a crime he did not commit, Glenn Ford, 64, finally walks away a free man. Ford, Louisiana’s longest-serving death row prisoner, was convicted and sentenced to death in 1984 for the killing of jeweler, Isadore Rozeman.

New information corroborated Ford’s story from 1983 insisting he was not present and had nothing to do with the crime. His attorney’s argued that inexperienced counsel and an unconstitutional suppression of evidence led to his conviction.

Ford tells reporters that when he went to prison his sons were babies and now they have babies. One reporter asked Ford if he holds any resentment and Ford responded, “ Yeah, because I was locked up almost 30 years for something I didn’t do.”

I can’t imagine how this man must feel, losing all that time with his sons and family because he was wrongly convicted. I hope he finds peace and is able to enjoy the rest of his time on earth with the people he loves most.
