Prepare to cry more than watching the nighttime fireworks at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom!
Jonathan Fleming, 51, was convicted of murder and sent to prison 24 years ago. Now, he is a free man thanks to a small, but extremely important, piece of evidence.
A hotel receipt from Walt Disney World just hours before he allegedly committed a murder in Brooklyn in 1989, along with the recanting of an eyewitness' testimony, and new witnesses coming forward, have cleared him of any crime!
So, what's Jonathan's mood now that he's been reconnected with his family?
"How do I feel? I feel wonderful. I’m going to eat dinner with my mother and my family and I’m gonna live the rest of my life. I’ve dreamt about this many nights and I’m finally a free man. Justice has definitely been served today.”
We're so happy that this man's dream of being rightfully declared innocent has come true.
Congrats Jonathan! We hope that you get to celebrate by going back to Walt Disney World again!
