It's good to hear, but I can't really call it anything approaching justice unless they provide a heaping wodge of cash, and the real killer's head on a stick. At best, I'd describe it as 'the discontinuance of further active injustice'. Yes, I am that much of a 'the glass was half empty, but is continuing to evaporate even as I speak, leaving it ever closer to total emptiness and never again achieving the state of true fullness it once knew' kind of guy sometimes.

Okay, it's actually fucking fantastic to hear. But that's as much optimism as you're getting out of me.

Fine, fine, it also kindles hope for future positive developments in the future. I hope you bastards are happy, I think I pulled a muscle from the unaccustomed exertion of smiling. :mrgreen:

Good News for Chris! (And about fucking time).

Now, make something decent come out of this, and turn your experience into a novel and sell it to Hollywood.

Then use the money to find your father's killer, and make sure they end up in jail.

That news just saved my day.

Congrats, Stofsk!

Here's hope you can find back into normal life as fast as you were taken from it.

I know where you're coming from. Most (probably all) of us do. I'm SO happy Chris has finally been exonerated, but I also know he must miss his dad something terrible :( The Szitovskys, Chris especially, deserve justice -- and as you say, that means:

*catching the guilty party
*undoing the horrendously unfair damage done to Chris's reputation and psyche.

For now, I wish I lived close enough to give him a hug. Welcome home, Chris. We always believed in you.

Awesome! This has been a travesty for so long, and it couldn't end a moment too soon. Congratulations from both me and the GF, who was similarly incensed at the unfairness of it all.

Congratulations Chris. I never knew you, but I knew of you from the thread on this board. Not much is worse than having years stolen from you for a crime you didn't commit, on top of losing your father to a murderer.

Best of luck now that you're finally out!

I sent money a while ago, but I'm not sure if Chris' mother wants her E-mail address posted publicly, and that's how you need to send it: via Paypal to his mother's E-mail address.

Paypal has a method for creating a donation button with an obscured E-mail address. If she used that method to create a Paypal donation button and sent us the code snippet, we could post it here. She needs to go to the Paypal website and follow their instructions.

Congratulations to Chris and his family. I can't imagine losing a few months, let alone several years to prison, especially in this situation.

Glad to hear it. I never knew Chris, but it's always good to hear when justice gets done, even if it is eventually. Roll on the compensation!

I don't know personally know Stofsk but I have followed the updates regarding his case since near the start and I'm glad to see he's free. Hope things work out well.

Pretty much my sentiments too, congrats to Chris for finally getting freedom, and I hope that the real culprit(s) get caught and put away for good.

I can't honestly say I knew the guy, but I've read some of the info on this site.

It's good to know that justice, of a kind, has finally been done, but this has been a gross cockup.

Is there going to be an investigation in to why the cops and prosecution fucked up so badly. Questions need to be asked of both of these parties. I'm happy Chris has been given his just freedom but the facts remain that due to the cops incompetence the real killer will most likely never get caught. But congrats to Chris and his family, maybe this will give them some closure on the whole evil thing.
