Earlier this month, after 33 years of wrongful conviction, Tyrone Day was finally exonerated when a Dallas County District Court judge dismissed the 1990 sexual assault charge against him, based on new evidence of his innocence.

Tyrone first wrote to the Innocence Project about his case in 2000, making him one of our longest-standing clients. To those in prison who continue to fight for vindication, Tyrone says: “Never give up. Keep pursuing your justice — your freedom. Keep pursuing the truth.”
