Murder Conviction of California Man Kash Delano Register Overturned After 34 Years in Prison

Kash Register

After spending 34 years behind bars for a 1979 murder he didn’t commit, Kash Delano Register, 53, of Los Angeles, California walked out of jail a free man when a judge overturned his conviction, reports NBC Southern California.  Two sisters of a key witness came forward and admitted that their sibling lied about seeing Register running away from the crime scene.

“He told me he just didn’t know what to feel,” said his attorney Adam Grant, who spoke to him after Thursday’s ruling. “He’s thrilled, excited, just kind of in a daze. He kept shaking his head and saying — ’34 years, 34 years.’”  

Register, who was sentenced to 27 years to life, walked out of jail linking arms with his mother, saying that he was just looking forward to one of her home-cooked meals — his first in more than three decades.  Register was charged with killing 78-year-old Jack Sasson, but when the Loyola Law School’s Project for the Innocent took on the case 2 years ago, their research clearly pointed to his innocence.

“People should look at this and say even when we think we’re doing the best we can, we make mistakes, we make really serious mistakes that affect people’s lives,” said Laurie Levenson, director of Project for the Innocent.  “In this case, the two eyewitnesses, they’re stories didn’t make a lot of sense, there wasn’t any physical evidence and the most important thing, our client, Mr. Register, had said from the beginning he didn’t do it,” Leveson said.

Register was convicted on eye-witness testimony, even though he always said that he was with his girlfriend at the time of the murder.  Speaking to reporters after his release, Register said that he holds no grudges and that everyone makes mistakes. He came up for parole 11 times during his incarceration and was rejected each time. Register believes it’s because he wouldn’t cop a plea.
