It’s rarely a straight line from prison to freedom for the wrongly convicted, but the journey Keyon Sprinkle traveled was more convoluted than most – and it consumed 7,380 days of his life.
Sprinkle was just 17 when Boston police arrested him for the Nov. 16, 1999, murder of Charles Taylor, a shooting he was accused of committing to protect his cousin, Clarence Williams, who was having an affair with Taylor’s wife.
