A Los Angeles man who's been in prison for 13 years and was ordered released by a Federal judge two years ago is still incarcerated while the state appeals the ruling.
Daniel Larsen was originally sent to prison for 27 years to life under the three strikes law, after he was found guilty of possessing a concealed weapon, a knife. But in 2010, a federal judge overturned the conviction because Larsen's attorney back then was found to be incompetent and has since been disbarred.
The State Attorney General's office then appealed...not because it believes Larsen to be guilty, but because his new lawyers missed the deadline for filing papers in the case.
