26 years later, judge overturns Cali man's conviction

Freed

The Los Angeles Times has a piece here about Bruce Lisker, who was convicted of his adoptive mother's 1983 murder. Following a newspaper investigation, though, a judge has ruled that Lisker was sent away on false evidence. And his original lawyer wasn't effective either. Lisker had confessed a couple of times -- but the judge believes they were attempts to get paroled because he didn't provide details from the crime. It isn't clear if the authorities will seek another trial.
