Case of Wrongful Imprisonment in New York City Could Cost Millions

A frightening case of wrongful imprisonment in New York City could cost the city millions of dollars to settle. The case, stemming from a 22-year-old conviction, was filed late last year in a Manhattan court on behalf of Calvin Buari. Buari was arrested, tried, and convicted of a double murder in 1992. However, in 2017 new witness testimony exonerated him of the crime and his conviction was overturned. Unfortunately, Buari had spent 22 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
