Rape Obscene

Bizzare evidence presented in court, see the evidence that made him spend 28 years in jail

In 1988, a man by the name Clarence Moses El was at his home, when he was taken in by the police as a rape suspect. The woman who was raped claimed she had been brutally raped, by a black man. More than a day after the assault, while in the hospital, the woman identified Clarence as her attacker, saying his face came to her in her dream

Clarence Moses-EL was convicted in 1988 and sentenced to 48 years in prison for raping and assaulting, despite no evidence connecting him to the crime. He sentence on the bases of the dream had by this lady.

Clarance tried to clear his name saying he was innocent but to avail. You how the blacks were treated back then in the US. But his efforts to appeal his conviction were unsuccessful, in part because police threw away DNA evidence gotten from the crime scene,according to reports.

But in December of 2013, while still serving his 48-year prison sentence, Clarence received a letter from another man, by the name L.C Jackson. In the letter Mr Jackson said he was surprised to hear Clarence had been accused of raping the same woman he had been with the very same night and sentenced to jail for it.

This letter led to a court hearing on July, where Jackson testified that he lost his temper with the woman and hit her in the face. He admitted to it all, but he said it wasn't rape. Clarence was freed but had already spent 28 years of his 48-year sentence in prison, 28 years he will never get back.
