LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles man who spent 34 years behind bars for a decades-old killing has been freed from jail after his conviction was overturned.
Fifty-three-year-old Kash Delano Register walked out of a downtown Los Angeles jail Friday afternoon and told reporters: "It's a beautiful feeling."
The Los Angeles man was sentenced for killing 78-year-old Jack Sasson in 1979 but has always maintained his innocence.
On Thursday, a judge threw out his conviction, saying prosecutors had used false testimony at his trial.
