BRONX NEWS: EXCLUSIVE: Bronx woman to sue city over wrongful conviction, 7 years in Rikers




She was behind bars and baffled.


Convicted by a Bronx jury in a brutal 2005 home-invasion shooting, Malisha Blyden sat inside a Rikers Island cell with a 40-year prison term stamped on her future.


But the inmate was innocent: Blyden never laid eyes on the man she was accused of setting up to be attacked with gunshots to his chest and stomach.


Her bad fortune was too much to process.


“It took me a while to realize they just convicted me on an attempted murder charge that I had nothing to do with,” Blyden said.


In her darkest hour, a fellow inmate provided Blyden’s first flash of hope in what became a frustrating — and finally successful — fight for freedom.


The prisoner knew Blyden was innocent because her Harlem neighbors were the ones responsible for the robbery.


The fleeing robbers, a mix of men and women, stuffed the bleeding George Peseo’s belongings into his green Ford Expedition and headed home in the stolen ride on Sept. 5, 2005.





“She was there when they came back from the robbery, in front of the building,” said Blyden, referring to the culprits’ home in the Polo Grounds Houses. “They must have been talking about it.”


The information failed to sway a judge at a 2008 hearing. But future breaks in the case produced her exoneration after nearly seven painful years behind bars.


Freed in January, her case was formally dismissed on March 11.


“I broke down, but I never lost hope,” she said.


Attorneys for Blyden are filing a notice of claim against the city on Monday, charging false arrest, wrongful conviction, false imprisonment, malicious prosecution and other civil charges.


Her lawyers did not request a dollar amount in the papers, often the first step in filing a lawsuit. A city Law Department spokesman said they will review the documents “when and if we are served.”


The whole thing, the lawyers claim, began when police pursued a shockingly bad lead.





Cops stopped Blyden and her friend Latisha Johnson on an uptown No. 4 train for playing loud music nearly a decade ago.


The friend was wanted for questioning in Peseo’s shooting after police — searching for a young female suspect — learned a call was made from the victim’s phone to Johnson’s father.


Cops theorized the call came from one of the female perps using Peseo’s stolen phone — when it was really a single-digit misdial done by the victim himself.


After 22 grueling hours of police interrogation, Johnson confessed and implicated Blyden. Cops said witnesses identified the two suspects as prostitutes known as “Lace” and “Jackie” who ran with the male defendants.


It was total fiction. Johnson’s case was also dismissed this month.


The women were found guilty in 2007 with the help of lying or befuddled witnesses.


Blyden spent her days in prison penning so many pleas for help that she lost track of the recipients. She even petitioned President Obama and Oprah Winfrey — to no avail.

Appellate attorneys eventually uncovered the truth through interviews with witnesses ignored by investigators and confessions obtained from the actual perps.


“As a result of their screwup, the real perpetrators avoided prosecution and now the statute of limitations has run out,” said lawyer Earl Ward, who represents Blyden with David Lebowitz and Julia Kuan.


Authorities wrongly “focused in on two individuals and they shaped the facts,” Ward added.


Blyden said the ordeal set her life back considerably. She’s struggling to find a job and spent a month in a shelter after her release before moving in with a friend.


She still wonders about the chunk of life she lost, and whether her goals of a job in fashion or business would now be reality.


“I feel like the time they took from me, there’s no amount of money that can replace that,” Blyden said. “I could have been doing so much with my life right about now. It’s just not fair.”

Over the last two weeks, we saw a sudden influx of Air Jordan Retro colorways flood the social media feeds. This is a direct result of Jordan Brand’s #FlightClub initiative, which involves a select group of “influencers” and voices on Instagram to help spread the word on some upcoming heat. The Jordan shoes that were revealed over the last ten days involved a great set of “Sport Blue” Retros, some new Air Jordan IIIs, and one of the cleanest Air Jordan 14 Retros to date.
