In January 2003, Amber Mundy, of Oneida, accused Dan Lackey of sexual assault. A jury found Lackey, of Canastota, guilty and sent him to state prison for 8 years. As it turned out, Mundy fabricated a rape accusation in Pulaski just 3 months after Lackey's sentencing and she was found guilty and served time in jail for the Pulaski incident. However, that information didn't immediately reach Lackey, his attorney or his father, Steve. The father had to find out about the Pulaski incident through his own investigation, 2 years after the fact. After 1,245 days in jail and prison, Dan Lackey was freed. He is suing the state for $8 million, claiming he was wrongly charged, convicted and imprisoned. In this video, The Post-Standard's John O'Brien interviews Dan and Steve Lackey about the case and what they went through.
