Man in prison for 20 years to be freed, convictions vacated

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) – A Milwaukee man is to be released from the Green Bay Correctional Institution after spending more than 20 years in prison for crimes he didn’t commit.

A Milwaukee County judge signed an order Tuesday vacating Daryl Dwayne Holloway’s convictions in 1993 on charges of sexual assault and armed burglary. Holloway, who is 48, was sentenced to 120 years in prison. He’s to be released Wednesday.

New DNA testing conducted after the Wisconsin Innocence Project worked on the case found he couldn’t have committed the crimes.

Keith Findley, a founder of the Wisconsin Innocence Project, tells WISN-TV (http://bit.ly/2drdxSe ) that Holloway has maintained his innocence since he was first accused of the crimes.
