http://www.facebook.com/hoodnews247 John Edward Smith is now a free man, after spending nearly half of his life in prison for a crime he did not commit. Smith, 37, a former gang member, was wrongly accused and convicted of first-degree murder in a drive-by shooting back in 1994. Smith's relatives and friends erupted in cheers on Monday as Judge Patricia Schnegg announced she was setting aside the verdict because Smith's conviction rested almost entirely on perjured testimony.
