WILL A MAN FREED AFTER 34 YEARS IN PRISON REMAIN FREE?

Kash Register who served 34 years in prison before he was released last October will face a judge Friday morning to find out if he will face a retrial for a murder he claims he did not commit.  His original conviction

Hinged on the testimony of a 19 year-old eye witness who said she saw an African American man running from

the scene.  This despite the fact Kash Register's girlfriend testified at the time of the crime she was with him.

A team of Loyola Law School students and lawyers with the School's "Project for Innocence" took on the case to free Register.  Last October the sister of the witness came forward to say her sister had lied in the testimony that put Register behind bars.  Register was finally released but in the meantime still faced a possibility of a retrial.
