Largo Man Unjustly Convicted Of Murder

Corey_Rocker_2013LARGO — Three years after Corey J. Rocker was sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison, an appeals court has decided the 22-year-old Largo man should never have been convicted of murder.

The court’s ruling is a dramatic turn that could result in Rocker’s freedom — if it holds up.

But this is not one of those appeals based on new DNA evidence or a witness who misidentified someone. At its heart, this appeal touches on a question so basic you almost never hear it discussed.
