Despite his release from prison and ensuing lawsuit, Doswell found himself in trouble with the law again in 2013 after pleading guilty to charges of possessing marijuana, crack cocaine and a gun.
He was sentenced last year to 11 1/2 to 23 months in the county jail for those charges.
Doswell reached the $3.7 million settlement with the city of Pittsburgh in 2009 after his wrongful imprisonment.
