My name is Michael Morton. I was wrongly convicted of murdering my wife in 1987. I spent almost 25 years (24 years and 7 months, to the day) in the Texas prison system before being exonerated and freed in 2011. I got out because of the efforts of the Innocence Project, pro bono lawyer John Raley, and advances in DNA technology. I am now remarried and live on a lake in rural East Texas. My book Getting Life was released yesterday, July 8th, 2014. The documentary of my ordeal is entitle "An Unreal Dream." Ask me anything.
