In 1986, Maurice Hastings was sentenced to life in prison without parole after he was convicted of murdering a woman and the attempted murder of her husband and another man in Los Angeles, California. In 2022, he was exonerated after DNA tests of a rape kit excluded him and identified the true killer, who had died in prison in 2020 while imprisoned for an unrelated kidnapping and rape.(Photo: J.

In 2009, C'Quan Hinton, Kino Christian, Dartanion Edwards, and Joshun Edwards were sentenced to life in prison without parole for the murder of a 14-year-old boy in Flint, Michigan. All four were granted a new trial and the cases were dismissed because the prosecution failed to disclose the only eyewitness's initial statement which contradicted his trial testimony and said it was too dark to see faces at the time of the shooting.
