Justice for Sean Ellis

Sean K. Ellis spent nearly 22 years in prison for the 1993 murder of Boston Det. John Mulligan. Ellis claimed innocence, and in 2015 his conviction was overturned--a ruling unanimously affirmed by the Mass. SJC in 2016. A retrial - Ellis' 4th for this crime - is now scheduled for Sept. 9, 2019.
