These guys went into prison, they were young, they lost virtually half of their lives and they'll spend the rest of their lives trying to piece back together and try to make sense of what they have lost and that's the reality.

Jabbar Collins

Jabbar Collins (born July 8, 1972) is an American man who served 16 years for a crime he did not commit. He was convicted of second-degree murder following the February 1994 death of Orthodox rabbi Abraham Pollack in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The 20-year-old Collins, who lived in a nearby housing project, was arrested and charged with the murder. In March 1995, he was sentenced by a jury to 34-years-to-life in prison, sixteen of which he served.In 2010, Collins was exonerated after a key witness recanted. The case was settled in 2014 for $13 million. It exposed questionable policies under the former Brooklyn district attorney, Charles J. Hynes, and Hynes' right-hand man Michael F. Vecchione.The case has been used by Judge Frederic Block in support of a bill for the nation’s first commission on prosecutorial conduct. The bill is pending approval by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
