'West Memphis Three' out of prison for a year

For nearly two decades, prison was the only home Jason Baldwin, Damien Echols and Jessie Misskelley Jr. knew.

Convicted as teenagers in the gruesome 1993 murders of three Cub Scouts in eastern Arkansas, the men known as the West Memphis Three were released last Aug. 19 after years of questions about evidence in their case.

Over the years, they've drawn attention from such celebrities as Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder. Now, they're trying to move forward while dealing with a new world of iPhones and Twitter as well as their own celebrity status.

Echols is preparing to crisscross the country to promote his new book, Baldwin spent time on the set of an upcoming movie about the case and Misskelley has been eking out a quiet life in Arkansas.
