BURLINGTON, CO (KDVR/CNN) – A man broke his silence from behind bars, speaking out about spending the rest of his life in prison.
Rene Lima-Marin was 19 years old when he robbed two video stores armed with a gun.
He served 10 years and was released in April 2008, but that turned out to be a mistake.
He says the rifle he used in the robberies wasn’t loaded, and no one was hurt. But his case was aggressively prosecuted under a program called “Cop,” a program which is no longer in use.
