CASE №00297
NAME: Larry Roberts
COUNTRY: USA
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police arbitrariness
YEAR: 2022
CASE INFORMATION:

Larry Trent Roberts, 36, spent 13 years in Dauphin County Prison, Pennsylvania, for a crime he did not commit.

Roberts was originally sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Duwan Stern in December 2005, however, in 2017, a district judge overturned Roberts’ conviction and ordered a new trial. The new trial found that evidence had not been turned over to the defense and that Roberts’ original lawyer was ineffective. Roberts was acquitted in September 2019.

In July 2021, Roberts sued a former city detective and a former deputy district attorney, accusing them of intentionally manipulating witnesses and omitting evidence of his innocence.

MASS MEDIA ABOUT THE CASE:

The lawsuit alleges: “Detective David Lau acted maliciously against Mr. Roberts such that his purpose was not to see that justice was done but rather to see that Mr. Roberts was made to suffer.”

“It’s like living in hell. There’s nothing worse than being innocent in jail while the person who is actually guilty is walking around freely,” Roberts said.
