Legendary BSO detective rights yet another wrongful conviction | Fred Grimm

Another wrongful conviction, years old, set right.

Who cleaned up the mess? Ask any of the old hands around Broward’s tainted criminal justice system. Had to be Curcio.

Det. John Curcio has long been our indefatigable righter of wrongs; dogged enough to pursue the truth 36 years after Hollywood cops hung young Regina Harrison’s murder on the wrong man.

The killer wasn’t, we now know, Ronald Henry Stewart, a serial rapist and convenient fall-guy. Stewart, resigned to spending the rest of his life in prison anyway, had pled no contest to the charge that he raped and murdered 20-year-old Regina Harrison to avoid the death penalty.
