The ‘Absolutely Horrific’ Saga Of Nathan Brown
June 26, 2014 by staff
The ‘Absolutely Horrific’ Saga Of Nathan Brown, After spending 17 years in prison for an attempted rape he did not commit, Nathan Brown is now a free man.
“It’s really a relief mentally, physically, to be free from serving time for a crime that you did not commit,” Brown said Wednesday as he held his 1-year-old grandson, Kenard Southern, for the first time. “It was hard. It wasn’t no easy task being in prison for 17 years for something you had no knowledge of.”
NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/Tyiw3p ) state District Judge Ray Steib on Wednesday vacated Brown’s 1997 conviction and 25-year sentence after attorneys from Innocence Project presented DNA evidence that exonerated the 40-year-old father.
Brown was convicted of attacking a woman as she returned home to her Metairie apartment on Aug. 7, 1997. The Jefferson Parish District Attorney’s Office did not oppose Brown’s application for post-conviction relief.
