In a stunning reversal, a Cook County judge on Thursday ordered the immediate release of Alstory Simon for a 1982 double-homicide.

Simon was convicted in the case after another man, Anthony Porter, was originally convicted for the crime but later released in a celebrated case that purported to show the flaws in the justice system.

Simon allegedly confessed to the crime, but serious questions were later raised about whether Simon had been coerced into confessing.
