Steven Toney
13 years served

St. Louis, MO

After a federal appellate court ruled Steven Toney had a right to DNA testing, the Centurion sponsored DNA test results exonerated and freed Toney in July 1996. He had spent 14 years of a life sentence in prison for a 1982 St. Louis, MO, rape. Although it fought the petition for DNA testing relying on two eyewitness identifications, the St. Louis County Prosecutor’s Office accepted Toney’s innocence and urged his immediate release upon learning of the DNA results.
