As reported in the Philadelphia Inquirer, KRMF partner David Rudovsky and co-counsel Len Sosnov successfully obtained freedom for 73-year-old Milton Scarborough, who had served 36 years of a 30-60 year sentence. Scarborough, who was convicted in 1977 for the murder of a central Pennsylvania family, has maintained his innocence since the time of his arrest. The only evidence against Scarborough was the testimony of three witnesses, all of whom have since recanted that testimony and explained that they were told what to say by state police investigators.
Rudovsky and Sosnov represented Scarborough in cooperation with Centurion Ministries, a national leader in the reinvestigation of cases involving the convictions of factually innocent people. Scarborough’s release is the culmination of 12 years of work by Centurion Ministries to prove his innocence.
