2012: A Good Year For University City Woman After Son Released From Prison

Dec 26, 2012

To most of us, having a good year is quantified by getting a raise, a new job or perhaps the birth of a child. But not to a University City woman, who got what she's been wanting since the mid 1980's.

As part of St. Louis Public Radio's series "A Good Year," Julie Bierach spoke to Lonzetta Taylor, whose son's murder conviction was overturned after 30 years.

UPDATE: The Missouri Court of Appeals for the Western District on Wednesday upheld the decision to vacate the conviction. In a statement, Chris Koster says he will take no further legal action, and the office St. Louis circuit attorney Jennifer Joyce says she has no plans to re-try Allen for the crime.
