This holiday season looks a little different with people around the world paring down their celebrations and taking their festivities online. But for wrongfully convicted people who have recently gained their freedom, this quiet holiday season represents a major milestone.
“Thanksgiving was great — my sister and I had a quiet little meal for our first Thanksgiving together in over 30 years,” said Ron Jacobsen, who was freed on bail last month after 30 years of wrongful incarceration.
Mr. Jacobsen said the best part of his thanksgiving meal, which included all the holiday staples, was the turkey, cooked by his sister Gladys.
