Ghanaian ex-convict, Richard Nyarko, who was sentenced to thirty-five years in prison has become a Kingdom representative following his release from jail.
Nyarko was handed a thirty-five-year jail sentence for a crime he committed in 1994 after his appeal at the High Court was rejected twice.
Despite the setback, he went on to appeal his sentence the third time, and a judge convinced his colleague judges who presided over Nyarko's case to reduce his sentence by ten years.
Richard Nyarko was incarcerated to serve the remaining years for the crime he committed at the Nsawam Medium Security Prison.
After serving his time in jail, Nyarko has finally received his freedom and has become a preacher of the gospel of Christ.
Crime Check shared details of Richard Nyarko's story in a post on social media.

Richard Nyarko was sentenced to 35yrs in prison in 1994. He is the first prisoner I interviewed at Nsawam Medium Security Prison.
His appeal at the High court was rejected twice. On his third attempt at the Appeals court, one of the judges who had listened to my interview with him was instrumental in convincing the other judges to reduce his sentence by 10yrs based on the advice the Judge said Richard gave to the public in the interview.
Richard has been released and is here this morning to say thank you to CCF. He has decided to preach the word of God. Let us all remember him in prayers as he undertakes this noble journey.
