New York – John Dwayne Bunn wept openly in court on Thursday after a New York judge cleared him of the fatal shooting of correctional officer Rolando Neischer in 1991.
Bunn just 14 in 1991 when he was arrested and tried for the murder and served 17 years in prison before being released on parole in 2009.
Even though after his release from prison, Bunn maintained his innocence and continued his fight to clear his name.
Rosean S. Hargrave a second defendant was released from prison in 2015, he too by Simpson, cited bad police work by Scarcella and his then-partner, Detective Stephen W. Chmil.
Both men were convicted on the testimony of one eyewitness, who was a fellow correctional officer who was sitting in a parked car with the murder victim.
Earlier this week prosecutors announced they were dropping charges against Bunn due to a lack of evidence.
