Man seeks freedom after judge tosses decades-old rape case

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana man could be freed Tuesday after nearly 50 years in prison for a rape conviction recently thrown out by a judge who concluded authorities withheld evidence.

State District Court Judge Richard Anderson overturned Wilbert Jones’ conviction Oct. 31, saying the case against him was “weak, at best” and authorities withheld evidence that could have exonerated Jones decades ago.

Anderson scheduled a hearing Tuesday to hear arguments over whether Jones should be released. Defense attorneys’ want Jones released immediately or freed on “minimal” bail.

East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore’s office is asking the Louisiana Supreme Court to review the judge’s decision. In the meantime, prosecutors want Jones to stay behind bars.

Jones, now 65, was 19 when police arrested him on suspicion of abducting

Mother of First Coast missing teen seeks help for daughter; all runaways

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – One of the worst feelings for a parent is believing your child may be in danger and that feeling doesn’t go away once the child is a teenager.

Sixty-five percent of all reported missing persons in Jacksonville are between the ages of 13 and 17, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. Many are labeled habitual runaways. 

Alicia Miller has a daughter who falls into both categories. Her 17-year-old daughter ran away from home on September 24, was located, and then ran away again October 12. Miller has not heard from her since. 

“I won’t allow myself to feel hopeless, I won’t,” Miller says. “I’ve contacted so many people to try and help find my daughter.”
