John Bunn, 41, was jailed at the age of 14 for a murder he didn’t commit. The decision was all based on evidence produced by ex-Detective Louis Scarcella, who doesn’t exactly have the best track record. Apparently, “more than a dozen of Scarcella’s cases have already been overturned.”
Bunn, and another teen named Rosean Hargrave, were accused of forcing Rolando Neischer and his partner Robert Crosson out of their car, shooting them and then stealing the vehicle. Neischer died, while Crosson survived the shooting and became the sole witness.
Bunn’s murder conviction was tossed out in 2016 after it was revealed that the lead detective on the case, Louis Scarcella, used ‘false and misleading practices’ while he was with the NYPD.
Apparently, Scarcella is a total skeeze.
Bunn and Hargrave were convicted based on tainted evidence produced by the disgraced NYPD Detective Louis Scarcella. According to the New York Post, the now-retired detective placed the teens’ pictures in a photo array for Crosson.
