It was stated that the findings regarding the attack were re-examined at the hearing held yesterday at the Los Angeles Court in the USA.
At the end of the trial, it was decided that Saldana was innocent.
Saldana spoke at the joint press conference with Prosecutor George Gaskon after the verdict.
Expressing her happiness about the decision, Saldana said, “It was very difficult to wake up every day knowing that he was innocent and to call for help while locked in a cell.” said.
“The deputy district attorney did not take any action after the attacker’s statement”
Prosecutor Gaskon explained that he was working to acquit Saldana after he learned that during the release of another convicted attacker in 2017, Saldana had explained to the authorities that she had “in no way participated in the fighting and was not present at the time of the incident”.
Gaskon stated that the deputy regional prosecutor at the hearing did not take any action after the attacker’s statement, and that this caused Saldana to spend 6 more years in prison.
Gaskon noted that he made a request for the case to be reopened, and thus it was understood that Saldana was innocent.
In 1990, 6 young people in the car in Los Angeles were shot, thinking they were gang members, and two young people were injured in the attack.
Saldana was arrested after the incident and sentenced to 45 years in prison.
