After spending 32 years in prison for a murder he always maintained he didn’t commit, having his original conviction overturned, and facing a retrial brought by Plymouth County prosecutors, Darrell Jones is officially a free man. Last week, a jury returned a not-guilty verdict in his retrial after deliberating for just a few hours. The finding brings a close to a case that included evidence of racial animus by at least one original juror, a ruling by a previous judge that the Brockton Police Department had deliberately tampered with video evidence, and claims by witnesses who said they had been pressured by police to name Jones.

Jim Braude was joined by Darrell Jones and his attorneys, Lisa Kavanaugh and Paul Rudof.
