A man arrested twice on suspicions of robbing banks has sued the FBI, the city of Denver and its police department, claiming he was falsely arrested and subjected to excessive force and malicious prosecution.
FOX31 reports that officials dismissed bank robbery charges against Steve Tally, who is now homeless and is seeking $10 million.
His lawyers are from the same New York firm that represents the Central Park Five, winning a $40 million judgment.
Talley was arrested for a pair of bank robberies in September 2014.
Prosecutors dismissed the charged after Tally proved his alibi that he was working during the first robbery.
Months later, Tally was arreted again based on FBI facial recognition technology. But an FBI analysis later showed Talley was not the man in the surveillance video.
“He was guilty before he was proven that he was innocent,” bank teller Bonita Shipp said. “He was an innocent man. He didn’t do it.”
