Innocent Mississippi Man Who Spent Decades Behind Bars Is Finally Free

Mississippi man Curtis Flowers was tried for the same 1996 quadruple murder six times.

He spent nearly two dozen years behind bars and was sentenced to death four times.

Now, Curtis Flowers is officially free.

Newser reports Flowers was released on bail in December, after the US Supreme Court overturned his most recent conviction.

Until January, the same prosecutor, Doug Evans, had attended to Flowers' case through all six trials.

Evans recused himself from the case earlier this year.
