Ep03 - Richard Rosario

This case was brought to our attention by my Wife’s co-worker; his wife was one of the pro-bono attorneys working on Richard’s case.  I am a sucker for police/prosecutorial misconduct (hey, that’s the name of our show!) and this one, in my opinion, is up there.  Twenty years gone and lives forever changed. 

I have great respect for the amazing attorneys that took on his case pro-bono and the Bronx DA Darcel Clark who was willing to give this case a thorough review.  Without either, he would most likely still be in jail.

Below is the picture that the NYPD had in “the books” and was used to identify Richard as the shooter.  The last two pictures are A) an image of Richard’s statement in the June 2016 court hearing.  B) Richard and his wife post charges being dismissed.   

Richard and his family’s resilience is inspiring and I hope the best for all of them.

You can follow Richard on Facebook here and you can watch the Dateline series here.

We hope you are enjoying the episodes!
