Just in: Innocence Commission sends Sledge case to judicial review

Sledge, who has been behind bars since 1978 after his conviction for those murders, has steadfastly maintained his innocence over the years and has spent countless hours researching the law and asking investigators, judges and anyone else who’d listen to revisit his case.
