Former A.G. Raises Questions About Conviction
A former Ohio attorney general says a man serving a life prison sentence may have been wrongly convicted.
Former Attorney General James Petro asked a federal judge in Cleveland Monday to grant Alfred Cleveland’s petition for release or for a new trial in the 1991 slaying of a prostitute.
Petro, who was attorney general from 2003 to 2007, said in a court filing that he was concerned Cleveland was convicted and sentenced to life in prison almost exclusively on the testimony of an admitted drug addict who was paid $6,000 to cooperate with authorities.
The man has since admitted that he lied about seeing Cleveland and three other men commit the 1991 murder.
The judge did not say when he will rule.
