Man freed after Eyewitness News Investigation

A man from Brooklyn imprisoned because of a District Attorney blunder is now free.

Oswind David walked out of Sing Sing prison Wednesday night, two days after an exclusive Eyewitness News report on his wrongful incarceration.

An appellate judge ordered him released on bail because assault charges against him had been dismissed months before his trial.

But the Brooklyn DA's office went ahead with the prosecution anyway, and David was convicted.

David could be retried for second degree assault, but officials say that's highly unlikely.
