years on death row. >> life is not always what we think it is. >> ray hinton's life was never what he thought it would be after 1985 when he was misidentified by a witness who picked him out of a mug shot book. his picture was in there after a theft conviction. when police found a gun in his mother's house, a lieutenant told him that he had been arrested in three shootings. including the murders of two restaurant managers. >> i said you got the wrong guy. he said, i don't care whether you did or don't. he said you are going to be convicted for it. he said you know why? i said no. he said we got a white man. they're going to say you shot him. going to have a white da. you are going to have a white judge. you are going to have a white jury more likely. and he said, all of that spells conviction.
that's what it doesn't matter that i didn't do it. he said not to me. >> reporter: the lieutenant denied saying that. but hinton was convicted at age 30. he was 57 when the u.s. supreme court ruled 9-0 his defense had been ineffective. a new ballistics test found that the gun was not the murder weapon. stood up. and said -- i sentence you to die.
no one had the decency to say -- mr. hinton we sorry for -- we sorry for what took place. one have said it. reporter: what did the state alabama give you to help you t back up on your feet? >> they dropped all charges that was it. >> reporter: no money. no suit of clothes. >> nothing, no. >> reporter: and that is where many states are failing the growing number of exonerated prisoners. it turns out in alabama, if ray hinton had committed murder and was released on parole, he would have been eligible for job training, housing assistance, and a bus ticket home. but most states offer no immediate assistance to the innocent whose convictions can be embarrassing because of misconduct or incompetence by police or prosecutors. >> you can't traumatize someone, try to kill someone, condemn someone lock someone down for 30 years and not feel some responsibility for what you have done. >> reporter: attorney brian stevenson worked on ray hinton's case for 16 years.

>> yeah. for eight hours a day. >> reporter: it took five years to got this job. at first he lived with his sister and he found work as a counselor for troubled kids. >> i got a small apartment in wn. ere have been nights where i rricaded myself in a walk-in oset. ept in there, thinking, that meone is going to come kick down my door and drag me back. >> reporter: you slept in a closet? >> yeah, yeah, a few times i have. are you over that now? six years later. >> i don't have the issues now. >> reporter: one thing that made it easier is a connecticut law that compensates the wrongly a year ago ireland was the first to get a check. what did the state give you? >> $6 million. >> $6 million. >> more than most states are giving. >> it comes to something like $300,000 a year. >> right. >> for every year you spent in prison. >> yeah. >> you say it is not worth it? >> absolutely. give me $5 million every year. still wouldn't be worth it. >> reporter: ken ireland was
at all. one is julie bahmer's home, michigan. >> other than the time what have you lost? >> everything. everything. my life is nothing as it was. >> reporter: in 2003, bahmer was a mortgage broker raising her sister's baby. he became ill. she took him to an emergency room. doctors there suspected the boy had been shaken until his brain was damaged. she was convicted of child abuse. she was in her fifth year in prison when new evidence showed that the boy had suffered a natural stroke. she was retried, acquitted, and the judge apologized. after she was released for a time, she was homeless. >> how did you start over? >> it was very, very, very rough. you start from the bottom. reclaiming your identity. i didn't have an i.d.
you start applying for jobs. then you have to go through, okay, now there is a five year gap on your resume, why is this? you tell your potential employer the truth. and in my case, i never got phone calls back. >> there was no support for you of any kind? >> no. >> julie bahmer works for a detroit area parish. >> thank you, god bless. >> hopefully my testimony. >> in her spare time lobbying michigan's legislature for a compensation law. >> no amount of money can ever bring back everything that i have lost. >> no one can fail to see the injustice in these cases, but when it comes to compensation there are people watching this interview who are saying, you know, it was just bad luck. and, and we don't necessarily owe them for the life that they lost. >> this isn't luck. this was a system, this was actually our justice system. it was our tax dollars who paid for the police officers who arrested mr. hinton.
judge and the prosecutor that prosecuted him, paid for the experts who got it wrong, paid to keep him on death row for 30 years for a crime he didn't mmit. this has nothing to do with luck, but everything to do with the way we treat those who are vulnerable in our criminal justice system. >> see scott's full report on our web site. cbsnews.com. the overnight news will be right back. get fast-acting, long-lasting relief from heartburn with it neutralizes stomach acid and is the only product that forms a protective barrier that helps keep stomach acid in the stomach where it belongs. for fast-acting, long-lasting try gaviscon . it's not always as easy for me as it is for him... it's easy for me cause look at her. aw... so we use k-y ultragel. it enhances my body's natural moisture so i can get into the swing of it a bit quicker. and when i know she's feeling like that, it makes me feel like we're both... when she enjoys it, we enjoy it even more. and i enjoy it.

york city, i'm scott pelley. the many kinds of stories, big and small all affect you one way or another. we ask on every story -- is it right? is it fair? is it honest? we are going to the original source, the people who know and that's when we know we can report the facts. the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley, week nights. captioning funded by cbs it's wednesday, january 27th, 2016. this is the "cbs morning news."
protesters and authorities in oregon turned bloody. one person is killed when when the fbi and state troops close in on the occupation of federal lands. fox news is getting dumped by trump. the republican presidential front-runner says he is not taking part in the cable's channel debate ahead of the iowa caucuses. and tragedy in indiana. a beloved principal puts her life on the line, pushing young students out of the way of a school bus, before it hits and killed her. r 57 newsroom at cbs news headquarters here in new york. good to be with you. i'm anne-marie green. this morning, the leaders of the armed group occupying a federal wildlife refuge in oregon are under arrest. the situation at the wildlife refuge itself remains fluid. the fbi and oregon state police stopped the group on a highway
