New York man sues city, local law enforcement after being wrongfully imprisoned for 22 years

By Aris Folley - 12/29/18

A New York man freed from prison after spending 22 years behind bars for a double killing he didn’t commit is now suing the New York City and local law enforcement authorities over the ordeal, The Associated Press reported on Friday.

According to the news agency, a lawsuit was filed on Calvin Buari's behalf on Friday in a federal court in Manhattan.


A judge overturned Buari's conviction last year after two witnesses came forward with new information about a double murder Buari was convicted for committing back in 1992.

Buari was later freed in May 2017 after the witnesses testified that they had seen another man commit the deadly shooting of two brothers on a street corner in the Bronx at the time.

Buari had been handed a 50-year sentence for the murders.
