Man gets day in court after spending 26 years in prison for wrongful conviction in rape case
DETROIT (WXYZ) – He spent 26 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Then he feared Detroit’s bankruptcy would take away his chance at justice. This afternoon, Walter Swift got his day at Federal Court.
When someone robbed and raped a pregnant woman in Detroit in 1982, police wanted to put someone away for the crime. They showed the victim hundreds of pictures of potential suspects. She picked out seven pictures of men she said looked similar to her rapist. One of them was Walter Swift.
Swift’s fiancé at the time, who now works in law enforcement, told investigators he was with her at the time of the crime.
Investigators didn’t listen to her. He was convicted. He was taken from his 2-year-old daughter and imprisoned for 26 years. Then a judge saw evidence that police hid from the defense – a lab test that proved his innocence.
“Mr Swift had a different blood type from the rapist, and that test was buried for 23 years,” said attorney Julie Hurwitz, of the Goodman & Hurwitz Law Firm in Detroit. The firm represents Swift in a wrongful conviction lawsuit.
“My family. The opportunity to pursue the American Dream. At the time I was getting ready to go to school. I had a job. I had a two-year-old child. All of that was stripped away,” said Walter Swift when asked what he most regrets losing due to his wrongful conviction.
