In 2006 Alan Crotzer was exonerated for crimes he didn't commit after spending almost 25 years in prison. In the ensuing years, he was an advocate for wrongly convicted, and pushed for automatic restoration of voting rights for convicted felons who had completed their sentences.

But on July 29th, 2012, he was arrested in Tallahassee on an attempted murder charge after another man told police that Crotzer fired on him as they drove side-by-side on Apalachee Parkway.
