The 59-year-old singer spent much of his life in prison. He was wrongfully convicted in 1983, when he was just 22, sentenced to life imprisonment without parole in a case of rape and attempted murder. On 21 March 2019, after spending 37 years behind bars, he was finally found innocent and released.
