On June 1, Superior Court Judge Edwin Wilson ordered a new trial for Kevin Johnson who was convicted in the 2007 shooting of Durham police officer, D.B. Vereen, who was wounded but survived.

“Mr. Johnson spent 15 years incarcerated for a crime he did not commit and had no part of,” said his attorney, Chris Mumma, executive director of the NC Center on Actual Innocence, who led Johnson’s defense team.

Johnson was released on June 2 and charges were dismissed by the Durham County District Attorney’s office on June 27. Now exonerated, he will file for a pardon from Governor Cooper.
