“Alvin Kennard, who was convicted of first-degree robbery, was 22 when he was first imprisoned in 1983. Now, 36 years on, the 58-year-old is finally to be freed after a judge ordered his release from Donaldson correctional facility in Bessemer.” If he was pushing four decades in the joint, he must have done something pretty bad, right? Actually, he robbed a bakery of $50.75 in his 20s.
