Man convicted of 2003 murder to be released from prison

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A man was convicted of a 2003 murder will be released from prison.

Bryant Gaines, was serving a 15 years to life sentenced for the fatal shooting of Clarence Eugene Bradshaw in September of 2003.

However, the Ohio Innocence Project got involved in the case, and determined Gaines wasn't the one who pulled the trigger.

Gaines' murder conviction was withdrawn, and he instead pleaded guilty to complicity to involuntary manslaughter. He was sentenced to nine years in prison, getting credit for time served. He will be released on Wednesday, but will be on parole for five years.
