SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — A man who served 18 years in prison for a San Francisco double murder he didn’t commit has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city.

41-year-old Caramad Conley’s suit claims police built their case with perjured testimony. The San Francisco federal suit was filed Friday.

Caramad was released from prison a year ago after a judge ruled a police informant and star witness lied on the stand.

Conley was sentenced to two life terms without parole for the April 1989 drive-by shooting deaths of Roshawn Johnson and Charles Hughes.
