A Denver man who spent 28 years in prison for a rape he long denied committing has been found not guilty by a jury after prosecutors tried him again.

Clarence Moses-EL was released from prison last year after another prisoner claimed he was responsible.

On Monday, jurors found Moses-EL not guilty of all charges.

Moses-EL walked out of the courtroom to applause and supporters chanting "It's over" and "This is what justice looks like."

He was convicted in 1988. The victim, a neighbor, initially named three other men as possible attackers but accused Moses-EL after his face appeared to her in a dream.

He lost several previous bids to clear his name, including through DNA. He then won the right to perform testing but police had thrown away the evidence.
