Family begs prosecutor to review conviction based ID by legally blind witness
Nakesha Harris stood on the street outside Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx's office Monday, with tears in her eyes and her arms wrapped around a framed portrait of her son.
"We are asking, we're begging, we're pleading for Kim Foxx and her office to really review this case with unbiased eyes," said Harris, 41. "Please send my baby home. Do not let me spend another Mother's Day without my firstborn."
Darien Harris, 26, is attempting to get his conviction in a 2011 murder case overturned based on new evidence that the eyewitness to the shooting was legally blind.
