Glenn Ford, now 64, was sentenced to death after being convicted of murder in 1984. Prosecutors said recently discovered evidence proved his innocence, which he always maintained.
Ford was convicted by an all-white jury for the shooting death of Isadore Rozeman, 56, in a robbery at Rozeman's jewelry store. Ford insisted that he was neither at the store nor involved in the crime.
"My sons — when I left — was babies. Now they grown men with babies… My mind's going all kinds of directions, but it feels good… Thirty years of my life, if not all of it. I can't go back." Glenn Ford
"I was having complete strangers call me on the phone asking what they could do to help. We're trying to do what we can to help him make the transition." Gary Clements, Ford's lawyer
