Man sues police in southwest Michigan after wrongful conviction

CONSTANTINE, Mich. (AP) — A man who served 20 months in custody for a wrongful conviction is suing police in southwestern Michigan.

Ray McCann was repeatedly hounded by police during an investigation of a girl’s killing in St. Joseph County.

McCann denied any role in the death of the 11-year-old girl but says he felt pressured to plead no contest to perjury.

The conviction was thrown out in 2017 at the request of a prosecutor.

McCann’s lawsuit says his rights were violated during a “corrupt scheme” by police. Another man confessed to killing Jodi Parrack.
