HONOLULU (AP) — A jury in Hawaii has convicted a former death row inmate from Delaware of robbery.
Honolulu prosecutors say Isaiah McCoy and an accomplice beat a man outside a bar and stole his watch.
McCoy moved to Hawaii after he was acquitted of a 2010 Delaware murder. He had been sentenced to death, but a judge found him not guilty at a retrial.
In 2018, U.S. prosecutors in Hawaii dropped sex trafficking charges against him.
A federal judge last year dismissed most claims in McCoy’s lawsuit that claimed he was wrongfully and maliciously investigated, prosecuted and incarcerated for the murder.
