DALLAS (AP) - Three men convicted of a nearly 20-year-old aggravated robbery of an elderly woman will be declared innocent of the crime Friday.

The Innocence Project of Texas and the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office say the three men were implicated in the 1994 robbery by a faulty eyewitness. Two others supposedly involved were juveniles.

But four people have since admitted to committing the crime. State District Judge Lena Levario says their testimony is credible.

Levario is expected to declare Darryl Washington, Shakara Robertson and Marcus Lashun Smith formally innocent in a court hearing Friday.

Washington was sentenced to 99 years for the robbery. Robertson and Smith took plea deals and received probation. While Smith is already free, Washington and Robertson are serving sentences on separate charges.
