A man who spent 28 years in prison filed a complaint with the Illinois Torture Inquiry and Relief Commission. Mark Clements wants his murder conviction overturned and a full exoneration.

He says was tortured by Chicago Police into making a false confession after a fire killed four people.

Clement says in 2009, he accepted a plea deal to accept time served in order to be released to be with his dying mother.

"And either I sign a document and get out of prison or I would have died in prison, I am here today to regain and recapture my back my life," said Clements.

Clements was 16 years old when he was arrested back in 1981.
