Andre Hatchett on the day of his release after serving 25 years for a murder he didn’t commit

On March 10, 2016, a Brooklyn judge reversed the murder conviction of Andre Hatchett. With the legal defense of the Innocence Project and Jim Brochin a partner at Paul Weiss, and help from Brooklyn’s Conviction Integrity Unit, Andre was proved innocent of a 1991 murder.

Take a look at highlights from his first day of freedom:
