Wrongly Convicted, Clarence Shipley Spent 27 Years Behind Bars , Will Be Home This Christmas

He spent 27 years behind bars for a heinous crime he didn’t commit. But this Christmas, he’ll be home.

In 1992, Clarence Shipley was convicted of first-degree murder. When the Baltimore native learned police were searching for him, Shipley turned himself in, but maintained he was innocent of the crime with which they charged him, according to WBAL-TV.

Shipley was accused of murdering Kevin Smith in October 1991. But he argued his innocence throughout the trial the following year, claiming he was in a different place at the time of the crime and police apprehended the wrong man.

Twenty-seven years later, they finally believe him.

The Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project argues police never investigated Shipley’s alibi. Furthermore, witness testimony claimed the killer was right-handed; Shipley is left-handed.

After Shipley’s family hired a former detective to look into his case — and the conviction went before the Baltimore Innocence Project Clinic for consideration — things finally began to change, ultimately leading to the innocent man’s freedom.
