FINALLY SOME -

Justice for Darrell Siggers

Wrongfully convicted of first degree murder in 1984,

Prosecutors agreed to vacate Siggers’ conviction because the ballistics evidence and witness testimony presented at his trial have since been disputed

Finally on Friday 10th August 2018 Darrell was released from Wayne County jail.

“Being in prison for 34 years for something that you didn’t do, and then to be free … it’s just an awesome moment,” Siggers, now 54, told the Free Press after his release. “I feel wonderful.”

Siggers fought for his freedom for decades before the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office Conviction Integrity Unit intervened in his case in recent months.

Prosecutors agreed to toss his convictions because of issues with the case and are now reviewing it to determine whether Siggers will be re-tried, spokeswoman Maria Miller said.

“It was determined that it is in the best interests of justice to grant a new trial,” Miller wrote in an email.
