山东十一选五预测 www.3ly15.cn CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. — A southeast Missouri man wrongly imprisoned 17 years for murder alleges in a federal lawsuit that police not only knew he was innocent before his conviction, but helped prevent it from being overturned.

The Southeast Missourian reports that attorneys for David Robinson filed the lawsuit Monday. It names the city of Sikeston, former detective John Blakely and former police captain Drew Juden.

The lawsuit alleges that Robinson was framed for Sheila Box's 2000 death because police didn't like him. It also alleges that police played pivotal roles in preventing the conviction from being overturned during two appeals.

Robinson was freed in May after a judge found "clear and convincing" evidence of his innocence.

Sikeston City Manager Jonathan Douglass says attorneys for the city will review the lawsuit and "respond appropriately."
