21 years in prison for a murder they didn’t commit

Antonio Yarbough and Sharrif Wilson

Two men spent 21 years behind bars walked free this week after DNA evidence burnt holes in their convictions.

Antonio Yarbough and Sharrif Wilson were teenagers when prison doors slammed shut behind them.

Now, in their late 30s, they will be welcomed into a world that they don’t know about.

What does freedom feel like? “I’m still going through it right now,” Yarbough said Friday.

“I haven’t slept yet. I’ve been up for two days now. I have no words for it right now.”

Nearly 22 years of hard time
