3:39 am
>> 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. stevenson started equal justice initiative, organizations overturning false convictions. >> they need support. economic, housing, medical, mental health care, they need to know that their victimization, their abuse, has been taken seriously. >> just absolutely unimaginable,
