One September day, Stephen s world was shattered when a state trooper arrested him for the murder of drug dealer Joe Viscido, Jr.-a crime that had occurred in Florida four years earlier when Stephen was 1,500 miles away.Though Stephen could prove he was in New England at the time of the murder, a man named Peter Dallas had confessed to the crime and named Stephen as his accomplice.
