North Carolina man freed after 17 years

The Innocence Project has done it again. Through their work, hundreds of people have been released from prison after DNA tests showed they were innocent.

Today, due to work by one of their member groups, The North Carolina Center on Actual Innocence, Greg Taylor walked out of a courtroom a free man and hugged his 26 year old daughter.

“She was 9 years old when I went to prison,” Taylor said, embracing her for one of the first times as a free man. “I missed her 10th birthday, I missed her 16th birthday. ”¦ I missed her marriage. I missed the birth of my grandson. Now all of that’s returned.”
