Man Wrongly Imprisoned For Murder Arrested On Drug Charges

ROXBURY (CBS) — A man who served 14 years in prison for a murder he did not commit has been arrested on drug charges.

Shawn Drumgold was arrested this week in a drug raid in Roxbury.

Drumgold was released from prison in 2003. He won a $14 million lawsuit against the city of Boston, though that money has not yet been paid as a final judgment has not been rendered.

A lawyer who has represented Drumgold in the past believes Drumgold is innocent.
