Former FBI Agent John J. Connolly Jr., a highly decorated agent – is currently serving a 40 year sentence based largely on the testimony of four convicted murderers and an admitted perjurer. Not only was his conviction based on perjured witness testimony, the trial Judge admitted his conviction was unlawful. John Connolly appealed his 2008 conviction. Finally after 5 years of fighting to win his appeal – justice has prevailed and the Third District Court of Appeal for the State of Florida has overturned his wrongful conviction!!
