INDICE DE GALERIAS
MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) — A man whose 1997 murder conviction was overturned in 2011 has sued Wright County and officials involved in his original prosecution.
The Mason City Globe Gazette says (http://bit.ly/1at8EyM) 59-year-old Jose Aguilera filed his federal lawsuit earlier this month. It alleges malicious prosecution, false arrest and conspiracy among its claims and seeks punitive and compensatory damages for Aguilera.
In December 2011 the Iowa Supreme Court ordered a new trial for Aguilera, who was convicted of second-degree murder in a 1996 shooting near a party in Rowan. The court ruled prosecutors improperly suppressed a state investigative file that bolstered Aguilera's statements that the shooting was accidental.
Last year Aguilera was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and soon was released from prison.
