Good news - Jaythan Kendrick exonerated and released after 25 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit.


 
Jaythan Kendrick was arrested for the murder of a 70-year-old woman during a robbery in Queens, New York in November 1994 — but he didn’t commit this crime.

Today (11/19/20), after 25 years of wrongful incarceration, Jaythan has finally been freed. A judge vacated his conviction based on newly discovered DNA evidence and witnesses that strengthened his long-standing claims of innocence.
