CHICAGO (CBS) — Stanley Wrice has been in prison for 31 years for a brutal, 1982 rape. Tuesday, a Cook County judge granted him a new trial, in part, because he was tortured into making a confession.
CBS 2’s Dana Kozlov explains.
“We knew the truth. Stanley knew the truth. I think a lot of people knew the truth,” said Heidi Linn Lambros.
Attorneys Jennifer Bonjean and Heidi Linn Lambros believe truth finally prevailed for their client – 59 year old Stanley Wrice. Tuesday, they won, not his innocence, but a new trial and his freedom.
