Speaking to the press on Wednesday, he said the hardest part of his experience is knowing how his incarceration hurt those around him. “I’ve done the time but throughout my time a lot of people have been there with me in their thoughts. They have suffered along with me. That’s what hurts the most. That this situation caused pain to the ones you loved the most.” (Photo by Kathleen Flynn, / The Times-Picayune)   Read what happened when District Attorney Cannizzaro tried to raise my bail to 1 million dollars after the Louisiana Supreme Court upheld the overturning of my conviction.
