His only escape was the occasional dream that he was back home in Baltimore, a free man. But hazy images always gave way to Ronald Addison's reality, a jail cell where days blurred into months and stretched into years. Nine years, with 21 more before he completed a 30-year sentence for convictions of second-degree murder and gun possession. This month, prosecutors dismissed both charges after a judge ordered a new trial because the state had not given the defense three witness statements that would have contradicted the only witness who testified at the trial.

City prosecutors dismissed murder charges yesterday against a man whose 1998 conviction was vacated in October, resulting in the release of a 30-year-old Baltimore man after more than seven years in prison. Rodney Addison was convicted of second-degree murder and possession of a handgun in the 1996 shooting of Lewis Jackson. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison in April 1998. After several unsuccessful appeals, Circuit Judge Edward R.K. Hargadon ordered a new trial for Addison in October, ruling that the state failed to disclose three witness statements that "undermined the confidence of the entire verdict."
