On death row for 30 years and then exonerated. Glenn Ford, 64, a Louisiana inmate who was on death row for 30 years was set free on Monday at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, Louisiana, according to a UPI report on Tuesday.

After being released, Ford said that his mind is going in all kinds of directions – but, he said, “It feels good.” Responding to a question about feeling resentful, he said, “Yeah – because I was locked up almost 30 years for something I didn’t do.”

As the story goes, Ford has been locked up since 1985 for the murder of a jeweler and watchmaker named Isadore Rozeman. Rozeman was shot and killed at his Shreveport shop in 1983. After that horrific event, Ford and three others were charged with the murder. However, the other three were set free while Ford was convicted by an all-white jury. The conviction was based on witness testimony and pawn shop receipts that were linked to items stolen from Rozeman’s business.

District Judge Ramona Emanuel signed an order which stated that undisclosed evidence had come to light which supported a finding that Glenn Ford was not present and not a participant in the robbery and murder of Rozeman. Therefore, at this point, Rozeman’s murder is an unsolved homicide.
