By Carla Murphy Jun 18, 2014

Jonathan Fleming, 51, did nearly 25 years for a 1989 murder in New York City that he did not commit. He was in Disney World on a family trip at the time. Now, according to his attorney, he plans to sue the city for $162 million. According to an early May Guardian article, Fleming was released with $93. He "doesn’t have a permanent place to live, a job or a clear path forward. The state of New York did not compensate him for his wrongful conviction…".  An Indiegogo campaign, since closed, has raised $50,000.
