In the nine months since his wrongful arrest for murder, Kenny Woods has tried fruitlessly to get a job. Even though the real culprit confessed and already has been sentenced, Woods can't convince skeptical employers to hire someone with a murder charge on his record.
After the Daily News chronicled his plight on Thursday, our readers sprang to action.
Four lawyers offered to work for free to help Woods, 22, a West Philadelphia father of two, clear the charge from his record.
The owner of a truck-driving school offered to waive the $4,000 tuition, pending a positive meet-and-greet, to teach Woods how to drive a big rig and get his commercial driver's license.
