Sadly, a New York Daily News story about a woman who got her framed boyfriend freed from Rikers is light on details about who this amateur sleuth is, and how exactly she proved Joshua Robles had been set up on armed robbery and sexual assault charges. Former friends of Robles allegedly persuaded a young woman named Alexis Hopes to file a report that he attacked her. Robles's girlfriend "tracked Hopes on Facebook and proved to the Queens DA’s officer that Hopes was dating" the son of his alleged framer.
