How selfie saved the life of a young man wrongly accused by ex-girlfriend from 99 years imprisonment

The man whose name is Christopher Precopia was charged with a crime he did not commit. Last year in September 22, 2017, the man was arrested in Texas, USA, for allegedly stealing and having the intention of committing a greater crime.
As it appears, the young man from Williamson County was being accused by his former high school girlfriend of breaking into her home and stealing her property. Then, she went on to say to cut an X into her chest with a box cutter around the hour of 7:20 in September 20, 2017.
This very grave accusation led Christopher liable of being imprisoned for 99 years. After getting arrested, the young man who kept on saying he was innocent.

His parents who were trying to prove his innocence posted a bond on his behalf just as they kept insisting that he was with them at the time the crime supposedly happened. Several affidavits trying to prove that the accused had an alibi were sworn. This was, however, not given any credence.
Christopher himself who said he was lost and "had no idea why everything was happening" insisted that he was with the mother Erin about 65 miles away from the house of the lady who was raising a hand at him.

After trying in vain to prove Christopher's innocence, an alibi was finally gotten - a selfie showing Christopher having fun with his family at Northwest Austin hotel, the exact location he pointed out. Even more, this selfie was posted on Facebook and publicised even before he was called and arrested by the police.
After nine months of being convicted of a crime he did not commit, the selfie was taken to the Bell County court and Christopher was eventually released. It was later discovered that this ex-girlfriend had tried to implicate him due to the troubled relationship they had earlier had.

While many were concerned about why the police did not earlier investigate whether there was an alibi to counter the accusation, Christopher was simply happy to have gotten out by means of a photo. He said, "I'm ready to actually live my life, the way I want to, without having any kind of worry that this can come back and hurt me."

His excited mother couldn't but also say these words: "I'm thinking, 'this is awesome. By the grace of God, she said it happened on the day when I can say totally, 100 percent, where he was at."
