Michael Morton

Michael Morton served nearly 25 years in prison for the murder of his wife, who was found dead in their Texas home in 1986. DNA evidence proved that it was another man who entered the home and committed the vicious crime. Morton's 1987 conviction was overturned, and he was set free in October 2011.
