Eric McDavid was set free on January 8, 2015 after federal prosecutors admitted that evidence was withheld from the defense during Eric's original trial. In total, Eric spent nine years in custody.

Background: In September 2007, Eric McDavid was found guilty of conspiracy to sabotage federal facilities in the name of the environment. The government’s case was based on the word of an FBI informant who was paid over $75,000 to fabricate a crime. Both of Eric’s co-defendants testified against Eric in return for a lesser charge. Eric was sentenced to an outrageous 19 years and 7 months in prison for a crime that was never committed. Support website:
