George Perrot, who was imprisoned for over 3 decades for a rape he says he didn’t commit, is suing law enforcement agencies that he said wrongfully accused him.

Perrot was arrested when he was 17 for the rape of a 78-year-old woman in Massachusetts. The evidence that law enforcement provided was based off of a single strand of hair. When he was released in 2016, the judge said that he was “reasonably sure” that Perrot had not committed the crime.

“Rather than do the work necessary to identify the perpetrator, the defendants, individually and jointly, short-circuited the investigatory process and wrongfully targeted plaintiff in an effort to simply close the case,” his attorneys say in the lawsuit against Springfield, several city police officers, a prosecutor and FBI agents.
