Appellate Court Upholds Exoneration of Man Wrongly Convicted of Murder

Posted on 24 May, 2021 at 11:40

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals upholds the exoneration of a man wrongly convicted of murder in Houston. According to the Texas Monthly, Lydell Grant was arrested for the murder of a man outside a nightclub in 2010. Six eyewitnesses identified Grant in a lineup as the murderer. Grant always maintained his innocence, but was convicted of the murder after a jury trial.


In 2019, DNA evidence was discovered that exonerated Grant. The DNA pointed to another man who later confessed to the crime. The trial court found that Grant should be exonerated. Despite the DNA evidence and the confession, the case continued through the appellate courts. The appellate court finally affirmed the trial court's decision and exonerated Grant.
