White Sox rehire man who wrongly spent decades in prison

Embargo Chicago***
Nevest Coleman talks to reporters on Monday during his first day back as a groundskeeper for the Chicago White Sox

Nevest Coleman's conviction in a 1994 rape and murder was overturned in November after DNA evidence linked the crime to a serial rapist, the Chicago Tribune reported. He'd been convicted in a 1994 rape and murder.

Almost two decades passed and, finally, in 2017, a Cook County judge exonerated him and Fulton, thanks to DNA evidence, which pointed towards a serial rapist, who has not been named in the press.

Mr. Coleman told local television stations that he often watched White Sox games while behind bars and dreamed of getting his job back.

The White Sox heard his story, then invited him to 35th and Shields for a job interview.

Coleman was embraced by longtime head groundskeeper Roger "The Sodfather" Bossard when Coleman walked into Guaranteed Rate Field, the newspaper said.

France's World Cup campaign begins against Australia in Kazan on June 16, followed by meetings with Peru and Denmark . And it was fitting that the 25-year-old would score his first global goal since his passing on such a memorable day.

"You won't be sitting here", Smith told him, alluding to the fact that it's time for Coleman to get working again. "I appreciate the White Sox giving me the opportunity to come back to work". However, he said that he realized that "you can't take that anger back to the streets and to your family".

There was no physical evidence linking Coleman or Fulton to the crime, and both men said they were coerced by police into making false statements. But investigators returned to his home during the night and brought him back to the station.

"We're grateful that after more than two decades, justice has been carried out for Nevest", the White Sox, who interviewed and rehired Coleman after his release, said in a statement.

"His first wish, before he wished for a hamburger, was to work for the White Sox", a cousin, Richard Coleman.

Among those who welcomed Coleman to his old stomping grounds this week were two of his old co-workers, who remain on staff at the ballpark and had testified to Coleman's good character for the defense all those years ago. "I call them every day".

The ballpark changed names from Comiskey Park to U.S. Cellular Field and is now Guaranteed Rate Field.

Frank Thomas, the league MVP when Coleman last worked for the Sox, went into the Hall of Fame in 2014.

The team was only too happy to fulfill Coleman's dearest wishes.

"I go, 'What's going on?' " he said.
