NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A man wrongly convicted of murdering a Brooklyn rabbi two decades ago is about to be sprung from a state prison, after serving almost his entire prison term.
Inmate David Ranta, now 58, looks a lot different now than he did when he was convicted, CBS 2’s John Slattery reported. On Thursday, he’s expected to have his conviction vacated.
“It tells me we were right all along. David was innocent,” attorney Michael Baum said.
