Rojai Fentress


Last week we shared the story of Rojai Fentress, a 40-year-old man locked up since the age of 16 for a murder he says he did not commit.  Six years ago, another man actually confessed to the crime, but Virginia’s governor didn't act on a petition for pardon from Fentress until recently.

Update: One day after Radio IQ reported on his case, the state announced it would free 40-year-old Rojai Fentress. He was convicted of a murder and locked up for 24 years even though another man confessed to the crime in 2014.
