An actor known for his roles on “CSI-NY” and “The Good Doctor” threw his support Friday behind a man who spent 33 years in prison for a murder he says he didn’t commit and is trying to overturn his conviction in the face of new evidence.
Hill Harper, 52, appeared at a press conference for Brooklyn native John Ramsey, who has filed a motion to overturn his conviction in the 1981 murder of Vernon Green in Flatbush. He was paroled in 2015.
Harper quoted Martin Luther King Jr. as saying, “’We are all tied together in a single garment of mutual destiny.’ “That means that whether or not my TV show is No. 1, we’re all connected,” he said. “We need to recognize the connective tissue to Mr. Ramsey’s case.”
