Man wrongly jailed for 37 years in USA


SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – According to US media reports, Joseph Sledge who is 70 years old, was jailed for life for the killing of a mother and daughter in North Carolina. He has now been found innocent by a panel of judges following new DNA evidence.

After freedom, Mr Sledge said he was looking forward to going home and doing the “most mundane” things like “relaxing and sleeping in a real bed”.

He said he never doubted he would one day be freed despite spending more than half his life in prison.

“I had confidence in my own self. The self-will and the patience,” he said. “Patience is the word.”
