Man wrongly jailed at 14 for the 1991 murder of a corrections officer breaks down in court as he’s exonerated after 27 years
John Bunn, who was wrongfully convicted of the murder of a corrections officer
when he was just 14-years-old, has been exonerated after27 years, 17 of which was spent in prison.
Jun Bunn’s case was tried by a jury, testimony was given, and he was then convicted all in one day. All these years he maintained his innocence but that didn’t stop him from spending 17 years in prison.
As he was exonerated on Tuesday, tears flowed down his face and he railed about the crooked process that stole 27 years of his life.
“They won’t admit I’m an innocent man,” said the emotional Bunn, now 41, as he clutched the hands of his lawyers in a Brooklyn courtroom.
“Y’all had the wrong man this whole time and you have (someone) out there running free and y’all had no right to do what you did.”
