CHICAGO -- (WGN) -- 37-year-old Norman McIntosh walked out of Statesville Correction Center Tuesday, his murder conviction vacated after he served almost 15 years behind bars.

He was able to return to his family’s home on Chicago’s West Side after his father hired attorney Jennifer Blagg back in 2010 and eventually got his 45-year murder conviction tossed.

“Norman’s case provided me a very unique opportunity to be able to almost allow the state to have no other conclusion except that he’s innocent,” Blagg said.

McIntosh was convicted in a 2001 gang-related shooting, but Blagg later found several problems with the case, claiming police rigged a lineup and pressured witnesses who later recanted.
