Freed from prison after wrongful conviction, he and his lawyer work to help other

April 27, 2017 from the News & Observer

Seven years ago, Greg Taylor was freed from prison after spending over seventeen years in prison for a murder he did not commit. Had it not been for the efforts of a determined lawyer, Chris Mumma of the N.C. Center on Actual Innocence, Taylor might have lived out his days in prison.
