Friends and family of Clyde Charles gathered in Houma, Louisiana on Saturday to mourn the death of a man who spent two of his five decades in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Charles passed away January 7 at age 55. His sister remembered him at the service for overcoming the obstacles of injustice:
“He was blessed,” Hill said. “He was dealt a very bad hand in life, but he didn’t let that stop him. … He didn’t hold no animosity toward anyone.”
