George Perrot the man released from prison in 2016 after serving 30 years for a rape of a Springfield woman that he said he didn't commit, is being held without bail in connection to a new rape case.
Perrot was arraigned in Essex Superior Court in Salem yesterday after police arrested him for allegedly raping an unconscious woman in Lawrence earlier this year.
Perrot's Attorney with reporters after court says that the state released his client into the world without a plan and therefore he reverted back to a life of drugs and alcohol and living on the street.
Hampden District Attorney Anthony Gulluni says the D.A.'s office opposed Perrot's release in 2016, which was ordered after the state Supreme Judicial Court ruled the conviction came from faulty forensic analysis.
Perrot will be back in court in June when prosecutors are going to be looking for a DNA sample from the suspect.
