GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - A Milwaukee man has been freed from the Green Bay Correctional Institution after spending nearly 24 years in prison for crimes he didn’t commit.

Daryl Dwayne Holloway had his 1993 convictions for sexual assault and armed burglary vacated with help from the Wisconsin Innocence Project. New DNA testing showed Holloway could not have committed the crimes.

The 48-year-old Holloway walked out of prison Wednesday and said he was “kind of scared” because it’s a “whole new world.”

Holloway was sentenced to 120 years in prison for the 1993 convictions. A Milwaukee County judge signed an order vacating Holloway’s 1993 convictions.

Holloway says he went through a divorce while he was incarcerated and hopes to build a relationship with his children.
