Federal lawsuit against SF in wrongful conviction

• San Francisco Chronicle

A man who spent 18 years behind bars after being wrongfully convicted of double murder has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city, saying police built a case against him through perjured testimony.

Caramad Conley, 41, was released from custody last year after a judge ruled that San Francisco police and prosecutors had failed to reveal to Conley's defense team before his 1994 trial that the city had paid thousands of dollars and provided the use of a house to the star prosecution witness, police informant Clifford Polk.
