Dewey Bozella, American boxer, spent 26 years incarcerated for a crime he didn’t commit. #wrongfullyconvitedwednesdays In recognition of those who have suffered the injustice of a wrongful conviction and those devoted to their defence. #wrongfullyconvictedwednesdays tell the stories of individuals who have endured a conviction of a crime they did not commit and their path to eventual exoneration. Dewey Bozella, American boxer, spent 26 years incarcerated for a crime he didn’t commit. When Bozella was only 18 years old he was framed and wrongfully convicted of murder. It was alleged that while he was burglarizing an elderly woman’s apartment, he murdered her. In 2009, his defence lawyers were able to prove his innocence, by demonstrating that evidence exonerating Bozella had been suppressed. After nearly two and a half decades in prison, Bozella was exonerated and able to live as a free man.
