Father is freed from Philadelphia jail after 25 years.
44-year-old Anthony Wright spent 25 years behind bars for the crime he didn’t commit. This was made possible only after the DNA evidence showed he was NOT GUILTY of rape and murder. In October 1991 he was convicted of raping and stabbing his 77-year-old neighbor Louise Talley.
Ofc the police imprisoned the first Black man they suspected. However with the help of DNA test Wright was cleared of all charges on Tuesday. Finally, he got a chance to reunite with his family and see his two granddaughters for the first time.
25 years of his live was stolen because of racial prejudice, but Anthony Wright was tough and survived. How many more innocent Black people were falsely imprisoned and have been waiting for justice?
