Joseph Amrine is finally able to taste freedom. After spending the last 17 years on the state’s death row and nearly 30 years in the state prison system he’s been freed from his murder conviction. The Missouri Supreme Court says he’s innocent and a local prosecutor says new charges won’t be filed. Amrine admits, before his murder conviction he was not a nice person and was going down a bad path. He says in some way, being put on death row helped turn his life around and maybe even saved him. Now, Amrine says he needs to catch up on the lost decades with his family. He says he might pursue litigation for the time he had to spend behind bars but he knows for sure he’ll be working to abolish the death penalty in this state.
