Man Paroled After 32 Years in Prison
(2008-08-15)
(wgvu) - ST. JOSEPH, Mich. (AP) - A man is free after spending more than
32 years in prison for a crime he says he didn't commit.
The Michigan Department of Corrections says 58-year-old Floyd
Caldwell was released Thursday from the Lakeland Correctional
Facility in Coldwater.
Caldwell was convicted of armed robbery in Berrien County and
sentenced to a pair of life prison terms for the 1975 knife -point
robbery of a retired judge and his wife at their Benton Harbor
home.
Caldwell always maintained his innocence and fought a long legal
battle to win his freedom.
The Herald-Palladium says a federal judge this year rejected a
bid for a new trial.
Caldwell appeared before the Michigan Parole Board in May and
learned last month that he would be released.
