About Husband of Maya Moore Jonathan Irons Biography

Jonathan Irons is an African-American man from Missouri who WNBA's star for The Minnesota Lynx Maya Moore believes was wrongfully convicted. He was serving a 50-year sentence for burglary and assaulting a homeowner with a gun in an incident in Stanley Stotler's home that occurred in the year 1998 at the age of 18. Stanley Stotler, who was then 38, lived alone in O'Fallon, which was a 45-minute drive from downtown St. Louis. Stotler was shot twice and was armed like his assailant. He then insisted that he had been misidentified and was not present at the scene. Missouri judge Daniel Green vacated his conviction after hearing Irons' testimony. He pointed out multiple problems with the way the case was investigated. He revealed a fingerprint report, which had never been presented by Irons' defense team during the trial. The print neither belonged to Irons' nor Stotler's'. While clearing Irons of all charges, Missouri judge Daniel Green wrote that the original case against Irons was "very weak and circumstantial at best." As of today, he was freed from prison after Maya Moore, a WNBA star, and other supporters proved he had been falsely convicted. For this, Maya Moore skipped another season to focus on the case. Altogether, Maya Moore missed two-season along with the chance to compete for a third Olympic gold medal. He was released from the Jefferson City Correctional Center after a county prosecutor declined to retry his case. After being released, he went to live with Moore's godparents in Atlanta. Moore's grandfather Reggie Williams, uncovered the key fingerprint evidence while investigating the case. Recently, on 16th September 2020, Robin Roberts announced that her production company Rock'n Robin productions has teamed up with ESPN films to produce a documentary about Maya and Jonathan's story.
