At the time the armed robbery in Brooklyn happened, Rodney Bradford was 13 miles away at his father’s apartment in Harlem. Lucky for Rodney, he was also on Facebook. Little did he know that updating his status would help get him out of jail.
If he hadn’t, Bradford, 19, might probably still be locked in a cell at Rikers Island.
That critical piece of evidence, time and date-stamped on Rodney’s page, proved crucial to establishing his alibi and getting the charges dropped.
