Munchinski requests bond

A judge reversed David Munchinski's murder conviction on the basis of evidence he didn't do it, but a state appeal kept him behind bars. Now Munchinski is asking to be released on bond as he awaits a new trial.

But state prosecutors won't let him out without a fight. They're appealing the request for bond, meaning Munchinski will be caught in loads of legal wrangling in order to win his freedom.

The case is more proof that once you're tangled in the legal system, it's a heck of a fight to pull yourself out.
