After 27 years serving a wrongful conviction, man becomes 10th to be exonerated under Krasner

PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A Philadelphia man who spent 27 years behind bars for a murder he says he did not commit is now free — the 10th person to be exonerated under the leadership of District Attorney Larry Krasner.

Willie Veasy has been in prison since 1992 for a North Philly robbery and murder, and every day since he has declared his innocence. But as of Wednesday, the fight for his innocence is over.

"It was never a doubt in my mind that he was gonna come home. The question was just when," said Ketra Veasy, who was just 12 when her brother went to prison. She and the entire family stayed on the front lines, providing support. 

He is free!!! After 27 years #WillieVeasy
