In their federal complaint filed February 18, 2010, John Pruitt and Darryl Berg detail how they were falsely arrested, held in jail, and pressured to provide information about crimes they did not commit. Finally, days before their federal trial was set to start, the charges against Pruitt and Berg were dismissed after the court learned that the police hid key evidence in the case and denying the existence of the evidence under oath.  Read the full press release.
