Clarence Moses-EL

After a woman dreamed that he rap*ed her, a man was imprisoned for 28 YEARS.

This is Clarence Moses-EL.

Clarence was just going about his daily routine one day in 1988 when he was arrested as a ra*pe suspect.

A woman in the hospital claimed she was brutally rap*ed by a black man.

While in the hospital more than a day after the assault, the woman identified Clarence as her attacker, saying his face appeared to her in a dream.

Clarence Moses-EL was convicted and sentenced to 48 years in prison in 1988 for raping and assaulting a woman when she returned home from a night of drinking, despite the fact that there was NO FURTHER EVIDENCE other than her bruises and her dream.

Clarence had long maintained his innocence.

According to reports, his efforts to appeal his conviction were unsuccessful, in part because Denver police threw away DNA evidence from the scene.

Fortunately, Clarence received a letter from another man, L.C Jackson, in December 2013, while serving his 48-year prison sentence.

In the letter, Jackson expressed shock that Clarence had been accused of raping the same woman with whom he “had sex” on the same night.

According to court documents, Jackson wrote, “I really don’t know what to say to you, but let’s start by bringing what was done in the dark into the light.” ‘I have a lot on my heart,’ she says.

This confession letter prompted a court hearing in July, during which Jackson testified that he lost his temper while having sex with the woman and hit her in the face. He admitted to everything. Although it wasn’t always a ra*pe.

Clarence had already spent 28 years of his 48-year sentence in prison.

Moses-EL was released in 2016 after a Denver judge read the words “not guilty,” according to the Denver Post.

“This is the most important moment of my life, right here,” Moses-El, then 60, said outside a Denver jail, adding, “I just want to get home to my family, my grandchildren.” It’s fantastic; I’ve been waiting a long time for this.”

According to reports, Moses-EL was set to receive approximately $2 million in state compensation in a case Weiser described as a “travesty of justice.” “We must learn from this… tragic error and action,” he said. “I believe we now have a clear and powerful example of financial and human costs.”

According to the Colorado Independent, people who have been wrongfully convicted and imprisoned in Colorado are eligible to petition for $70,000 per year they spent behind bars, and in Moses-EL’s case, that total comes to nearly $2 million, making him the second person to be compensated under this law.
