Kevin Strickland 'not rested just yet' two months after exoneration
At 43 years, Kevin Strickland served Missouri's longest wrongful conviction sentence. He and fellow exoneree Ricky Kidd share plans to raise awareness and prevent others from similar fates.
The constant reminders of serving 43 years for a crime he didn't commit, "just dredges up the pain of it," Kevin Strickland said.
After being exonerated and left empty-handed by the state, Kevin Strickland and Ricky Kidd are planning a speaking tour to educate others on wrongful convictions and lack of compensation.
