Freed after 24 years for a murder he didn't commit

- Jonathan Fleming spent 24 years behind bars for murder he didn't commit after he was able to prove he was actually on vacation at Disney World.

He was was freed in April of 2014.

Defense attorneys and prosecutors asked a Brooklyn judge to dismiss Fleming's conviction in the 1989 shooting. A key eyewitness recanted, new witnesses have implicated someone else and a review by prosecutors turned up a hotel receipt putting Fleming in Florida hours before the killing, defense lawyers Anthony Mayol and Taylor Koss said.

On Good Day New York on Monday Fleming says there is nothing about prison he misses except for three friends that he still visits behind bars.

Fleming says he believes one of them is innocent and is working with a lawyer in an effort to free him.

He has a musical group his is backing called Dreamhouse.  They are releasing a single in February on iTunes.
