Barry Gibbs on His Exoneration and Settlement

Thursday, June 24, 2010

Barry Gibbs had served 19 years in prison when his conviction was overturned in 2005 after evidence surfaced that he had been framed for murder by a corrupt detective.  He sued New York City in 2006, and the city agreed on June 3, 2010, to pay him $9.9 million, the largest personal settlement in its history. We’ll talk to him about his experience and the settlement.

He was a drugie who beat women. He did it. Prison saved his life. No one who knew him as an adult will have anything to do with him. Do some investigating. There's something fishy about pay off

I knew Barry when he got arrested. Never believed he did it. I'm so happy to see him free.
