Video: After 25 years, true freedom for Steven Phillips


Watch a Dallas Morning News video as Innocence Project Staff Attorney Jason Kreag cuts off Steven Phillips’ ankle monitor yesterday, after he was cleared of 11 sexual assaults he didn’t commit. Phillips was released from prison on parole late last year, and since then he has been forced to register as a sex offender and wear the ankle bracelet.

“I had something to hang onto in the early years,” Phillips said. “I’m innocent and I’m in prison. And sometimes that’s all there was to hang on to, the fact that I’m innocent. I knew it was going to come into play at some time….It’s unfortunate that it took 25 years to come into play.”
