BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn man is out of prison after serving nearly 20 years behind bars for the shooting death of a child, a crime that he insists he didn’t commit.
Sunny Moses was 19 years old when he was arrested and charged in the death of a 4-year-old girl.
His murder conviction is among approximately 50 cases that are under review by the district attorney's office because of the actions of Louis Scarcella, the lead detective behind those investigations.
The 37-year-old Moses says Scarcella physically beat a confession out of him back in 1995 in the death of Shamone Johnson, who was struck by a stray bullet.
Moses is now out on parole after his attorneys found flaws in the prosecution's case.
Scarcella's cases came under review after an overturned conviction of David Ranta, who was found guilty of murdering a Brooklyn rabbi back in 1991.
