(PRLEAP.COM) February 1, 2019 - Edward J. Foster, Esquire of Counsel with The Law Office of Alva & Shuttleworth, LLC along with the Pennsylvania Innocence Project has obtained a new trial for Robert Outlaw an innocent man convicted and imprisoned for over 16 years for a murder he did not commit.

On January 29, 2019, the Honorable Diana L. Anhalt of the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County ordered that the 2004 conviction for murder and life sentence of Robert Outlaw be vacated and he be granted a new trial. This comes after an evidentiary hearing that took place over two days in November, where Mr. Outlaw presented witnesses, including a credible eyewitness to the shooting of Jamal Kelly that took place in September of 2000. This is a tremendous day for justice and a huge step forward for Mr. Outlaw who has been adamantly proclaiming his innocence since he was first charged for this shooting in 2003.
