And if the prosecutors involved had the slightest idea about it, same for them.
John Bunn, convicted in an August 1991 killing based on tainted evidence produced by ex-Detective Louis Scarcella, turned angry Tuesday as prosecutors announced they would not retry his case.
"They won't admit I'm an innocent man," said the emotional Bunn, now 41, as he clutched the hands of his lawyers in a Brooklyn courtroom.
"Y'all had the wrong man this whole time and you have (someone) out there running free and y'all had no right to do what you did."
'We won't retry the case.' I have no words.
