Young Correctional Institute in Wilmington, Delaware for nearly 40 years, was released last week. He held a life sentence for the rape of a young woman, which was finally dismissed after the assistance of his attorneys from The Igwe Firm. Daniels filed appeal after appeal since his conviction to no avail. Attorney Emeka Igwe stated that the case was flawed from the start because neither the evidence nor the accusations received accurate and thorough examination.
