Former Ohio attorney general supports inmate's claim that he was wrongly convicted in slaying

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, April 8, 2014 5:56 AM EDT

A former Ohio attorney general says a man serving a life prison sentence may have been wrongly convicted.

Former Attorney General James Petro asked a federal judge in Cleveland Monday to grant Alfred Cleveland's petition for release or for a new trial in the 1991 slaying of a prostitute.

Petro, who was attorney general from 2003 to 2007, said in a court filing that he was concerned Cleveland was convicted and sentenced to life in prison almost exclusively on the testimony of an admitted drug addict who was paid $6,000 to cooperate with authorities.

The Plain Dealer ( ) reports that the man has since admitted that he lied about seeing Cleveland and three other men commit the 1991 murder.

The judge did not say when he will rule.
