Man jailed for 28 years after 'woman dreamt he raped her' to gain freedom

A Colorado man who spent almost three decades in prison after a woman 'dreamed' that he raped her may soon go free. Denver District Court Judge Kandace Gerdes overturned Clarence Moses-El’s 1988 conviction, after he has served more than half of his 48-year sentence.

The rape victim, a neighbour of Mr Moses-El’s, initially identified someone else as her attacker but later changed direction after his face allegedly came to her in a dream, while she was in hospital just a day after the cut...

His break came in December 2013 when another man, L.C. Jackson, sent him a letter in prison saying he couldn't believe Moses-EL was accused of raping the woman because he 'had sex' with her at the same time that night.

Blood stains on evidence collected from the scene of the crime were re-tested last year and the results show that it actually belonged to another man who was subsequently identified by the victim as the assailant.

Judge Gerdes has ordered a retrial for Mr Moses.

They didn't get their facts right before sentencing him so they should adequately compensate him.

After three decades? GOD! This is one of the reasons I will always pray that God vindicates those who have been locked up for sins they didn't commit!

I wonder if it was a white man if the dream premise would have stood. I have to admit the American judicial system is a tad biased.

Can you imagine, after spending so many years in jail.
in as much as rape is a serious offence with serious consequences, false accusation should carry some level of punishment too.

How dis so called whites can be very senseless... dis is kinda similar 2 d case of a woman who sued Michael Jackson's family cos she claimed she was pregnant after Michael's ghost slept wit her! How d heck is dat ever possible.. Well I hope dis man is duly compensated..

Anonymous said...

So i can just go and accuse someone of a crime that he did not commit and they will jail the person without evidence? What if i was halucinating? What if i was lying? Why didnt they do the blood test in the first place? Why did they just take the woman's words without further investigation? Rubbish judgement. The judge should be jailed too. Stmcheew
