New Jersey resident Taron Hill knows how important it is to have your name cleared. In 2004, Hill was convicted of shooting and killing two bystanders on a Camden street corner. At the time, authorities prosecuted him based on a lone eyewitness using just one photo. After serving more than 16 years of his sentence, he walked out of the New Jersey State Prison a free man this weekend.
