NEW YORK – The day Jonathan Fleming was cleared of the murder that put him behind bars for almost 25 years, he strode out of a New York City courthouse to congratulations from passers-by and what he sees as the start of a new life.
The weeks since have been a mix of emotional highs and frustrations.
He marveled at strangers donating thousands of dollars to help him but doesn't yet have a place of his own.
He had a first-ever meeting with a son he learned was his while in prison, even as he prepares to visit another son serving a prison term of his own.
Fleming says there's a lot to catch up on. But he says he's looking forward to it.
