  • Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro tells reporters on Monday, May 12, 2014, that Reginald Adams, 61, has been freed after being unjustly imprisoned for 34 years because former prosecutors and former detectives withheld evidence that would have acquitted him of killing a police officer’s wife in 1979.

  • Cannizzaro said he and the attorneys with him had just come from court, where they asked a district judge to reverse Adams’ 1990 conviction on a charge of second-degree murder.
