BOSTON (CBS) — A legal victory for Sean Ellis, the man at the center of the Netflix documentary Trial Four, came Tuesday. A judge is allowing Sean Ellis’s motion for a new trial on the gun conviction that remains on his record from the 1993 killing of Boston Police Detective John Mulligan.
Ellis was initially convicted of murdering Mulligan and served 21 years for the crime before the conviction was overturned in 2015.
Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins has said in the past if Ellis is granted a new trial for the gun conviction, she will not re-prosecute him, meaning Ellis’s record will be wiped clean.
“This whole case is a very sad chapter in the history of the criminal justice system. Thankfully, this chapter seems to be nearing its conclusion,” said Superior Court Associate Justice Robert Ullman while giving his decision.
