A man set free after 21 years in prison is now suing Chicago Police.

Jacques Rivera was released last fall after a key witness recanted his story about the murder Rivera was convicted of committing.

His lawsuit accuses police officers of manipulating the witness, who was only 12-years-old at the time,

Rivera was sentenced to 80 years in prison in the 1988 killing of a teenager.
