Just 16 years old at the time of his conviction, Michael Anthony Williams served nearly 24 years of a life sentence for aggravated rape. The victim, who was his tutor, misidentified Williams, and he was convicted. More than two decades later, DNA testing proved that he could not have committed the crime. Upon his release, the Louisiana Department of Corrections issued him a check for $10.

Incarcerated for 23.5 years. (Innocence Project/Dan Gair)
