A few weeks ago, MAIP exoneree Mike McAlister spent Thanksgiving outside prison walls for the first time in 29 years.

Mike couldn’t be more grateful for the chance to be with his family at the holidays and told Richmond’s NBC 12 on Thanksgiving, “That’s why I couldn’t give up. Because of my family.”
