China – Man Sentenced Not Guilty After 26 Years in Prison

In 1993, two kids were found dead in a pool in Jiangxi. They were strangled first and then dumped there. The police soon arrested Zhang Yuhuan, a local farmer whose clothes were found nearby and with scars on both arms. One year later, he received a death sentence with reprieve.

On August 4 this year, after almost 27 years behind bars, Jiangxi Higher People’s Court reviewed the case and discovered that in the original trial, the evidence was not clear. Base on the presumption of innocence, Zhang is sentenced again as not guilty, after 9,778 days in prison, the longest record of its kind in China.
