“I forgave and forgive” Man wrongfully convicted of rape says as he leaves Prison after spending nearly 50 Years

5a0de1b0efc83A 65-year-old Louisiana man who was arrested at the age of 19 and wrongly jailed without parole walked out of prison on Wednesday, after his rape conviction was overturned by a judge.

According to reports, Wilbert Jones was arrested on suspicion of abducting a nurse at gunpoint from a Baton Rouge hospital’s parking lot and raping her behind a building on the night of Oct. 2, 1971.

The nurse, who died in 2008, picked Jones out of a police lineup more than three months after the rape. Jones was convicted of aggravated rape at a 1974 retrial and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
