Kwame Ajamu

Ronnie Bridgeman, now known as Kwame Ajamu, wipes away tears during a hearing where charges were dismissed Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014, in Cleveland. Ajamu, the last of three men convicted and sentenced to death in the 1975 slaying of an Ohio businessman had his charges dismissed. Ajamu was 17 when he was convicted in the shooting death of Harry Franks outside a Cleveland corner store. Ajamu was released from prison in January 2003 after 27 years behind bars. His brother, Wylie Bridgeman, and their best friend from the neighborhood, Ricky Jackson, were released from prison late last month after serving nearly 40 years. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)
