Presenter: Richard Miles
On Feb. 15, 2012, Texas’ highest state court, the Court of Criminal Appeals, found Richard Miles innocent of a murder and attempted murder for which he had been incarcerated 15 years but had nothing to do with. While incarcerated, Richard unsuccessfully appealed his conviction in July 1997 and was denied his first Writ of Habeas Corpus in February 2006. He was released from prison on Oct. 10, 2009. But the fight was far from over.
Richard Miles founded Miles of Freedom, a Dallas nonprofit that seeks to deal with the entire structure of re-entry when it comes to the previously incarcerated individual coming home. Their mission is to equip, empower and employ people returning home from prison and provide support and assistance for families and communities impacted by incarceration.
