Steven Barnes, Freed November 23, 2008
Barnes served nearly two decades in New York prison for a murder he didn't commit. Three months after his release, he talked with the Innocence Project about the day he learned that he would be freed and the pleasures of his first days of freedom.
Ronald Taylor, Exonerated January 14, 2008
Taylor was wrongfully convicted in 1995 in Houston based in part on inaccurate forensic testing. He served 12 years in prison before DNA testing obtained by the Innocence Project proved his innocence and led to his exoneration in early 2008. In this video, he talks about the causes of his wrongful conviction and his work to promote reform in Texas.
Rickie Johnson, Exonerated January 14, 2008
Johnson served 25 years in Louisiana prison before he was freed in January 2008 based on DNA evidence of his innocence. In this video, he reunites with Calvin Willis, another exoneree who served time with Johnson in Angola State Penitentiary.
