LOS ANGELES (AP) — State prosecutors are reconsidering a motion to send a man back to prison after he was freed last year after 26 years behind bars in his mother’s death.

Chief Deputy Attorney General James Humes said Thursday that he is reviewing the motion filed Wednesday in the case of 45-year-old Bruce Lisker.

Lisker was sentenced to life in prison for stabbing his 66-year-old mother, Dorka, in 1983 at her Sherman Oaks home.

He was released a year ago when U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips ruled he was convicted with false evidence and didn’t have adequate legal representation.

Humes says he will look at all the circumstances involved in Lisker’s case and determine whether the motion was appropriate.

    This is shocking. How could any human being want to put a man back behind bars, who is proved innocent, just because a twist in the law might allow it? 26 years served – by an innocent man. Who is the criminal here?


    why send him back now you should see how well the 26 years has done in your justice system, after all he was 19 when the murder occured.
