I See You: White Sox Re-Hire Man Who Was Wrongly Convicted

In 1994, Nevest Coleman was convicted of the rape and murder of a 20-year-old woman. After 23 years, he was spared the death penalty, in part by his coworkers' testimonials and DNA evidence substantiated by the Exoneration Project at the University of Chicago Law School. 

The new evidence proved Coleman did not commit the crimes he was convicted of. After more than 20 years in prison, his name has been cleared and his freedom restored. 

 

While in jail, Coleman spoke of his hope to return to the job he was working before incarceration - a groundskeeper for the Chicago White Sox. His friends and family worked to ensure that his distant dream could become a reality and it worked. 

He is back at the Chicago White Sox grounds and will serve as a constant in Coleman's new life as he re-enters society after his unjust incarceration.
