LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A Louisville man who spent 14 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit has now filed a lawsuit against the City of Louisville and 8 police officers.

In the lawsuit, Kerry Porter claims officers wrongfully conspired to convict him of a murder in 1996 by fabricating evidence, using improper identification procedures and hiding evidence that would have cleared him.

The suit claims the city condoned the behavior by failing to track and identify officers who were repeatedly accused of misconduct.

Porter was released from prison last year.
