Wrongly Imprisoned Man Released

David Robinson, who has spent 17 years in prison for a murder he did not commit was released from the Jefferson City Correctional Center yesterday. [Monday]

The 49 year old was convicted of the murder of Sheila Box in 2001. A few years after his imprisonment began, another man confessed to the murder, and by 2009, both witnesses in the case had recanted.

In February a judge ruled Robinson was innocent, and ordered his release.
