Man sues federal investigators after spending 17 years in prison falsely convicted

A mentally and cognitively disabled man who spent 17 years in prison after being wrongly convicted of rape and murder has filed a federal lawsuit against investigators who allegedly coerced him into confessing while clearing the actual killer.

Jamie Lee Peterson was cleared last year by DNA testing that was not available in 1996 when Geraldine Montgomery, 68, was raped and killed in her Kalkaska home.
