AFTER spending 25 years in prison for a murder and rape which he contended for years he did not commit, Anthony Wright (previously convicted as a juvenile of hitting a police officer with a piece of lumber that broke his nose, jaw and teeth) was freed this week. He was acquitted in a new trial based on DNA evidence.
According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, Wright had this to say in a press conference:
“Who am I to hold a grudge against somebody? I don’t do that, man. I worship a merciful God. And I believe in him, and all the chips will fall where they may. We’re here today because of that.”
