Mubarez Ahmed

Mubarez Ahmed was convicted in 2002 of two counts of murder in Detroit, Michigan. His charges were dismissed in 2018 after the sole eyewitness to the shootings recanted her trial testimony that Ahmed was the shooter, and it was revealed that a police officer had used false information to create probable cause for Ahmed's arrest. The Michigan Innocence Clinic and the Wayne County CIU collaborated on his exoneration. (Photo: Daniel Mears/Detroit News)
