Time served, probation for five years and no suit, so if he has been vindicated, what's up with that.
Those that say we have the greatest justice system in the world need to ask themselves this:
What if I were wrongly accused and imprisoned for something I was entirely innocent of? Would I demand change or still think the system is so great?
The person that buries or conceals evidence that could exonerate someone should do twice the time of the wrongly convicted and any civil award should be split between the individual and the dept that person works for. Until personal accountability is enforced, this stuff will continue
Tell me why should the young man be on probation if he's not guilty? Also, what about the second crime? I don't understand, so could someone please explain it to me!
I'm confused. Bright was released with time served and 5 years probation???? He also agreed not to sue as part of his release. Sounds to me he had something to do with this double murder or something else. So apparently he's not totally innocent?
It seems this man has been taken twice . . . by cops & prosecuting atty the first time & now by the district. How can they put him on five year probation & force him to sign an agreement not to sue the District after police failed t reveal all info to the court/lawyer?
This story Smells!
Our "Justice" system is a tool of oppression just like our drug and immigration laws. I will suggest he is as innocent as he says he is. I would also like to note that the polygraph has been debunked for a long time. The result of a polygraph is evidence of nothing. Police should stop using them and the media should stop reporting the results as if they have any meaning whatsoever.
This article is either deceiving, poorly written or both. It does not say the conviction was overturned or there was some other legal remedy. It only states he got out of prison after serving 25 years. It reads like he's still legally guilty only not in prison.

Isn't that Extortion, promise not to sue as a condition for his release ? I mean what if he disagreed and said he would not sign the release, would they have kept him in jail ?
If I were innocent and in prison for 25 years I think I would sign anything to get out of that hell wouldn't you ?
That is absurd he is on probation and can not sue, he has lost 40% of his life behind bars because the police just wanted a conviction. Our justice system is flawed, more so the investigation portion of things.
