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.

    hiding behind the race card again. Sure, mistakes were made in the trial, but playing the race card is a sign of greed. Congrats on putting another dark cloud over your image and I hope he gets nothing out of this.

    You can only play the race card when the officers involved are white. Earl Sanders and Napoleon Hendricks are black police officers who suppressed evidence and payed informants to testify against an innocent man. Get your facts straight.
