Wrongfully imprisoned for decades, ex-inmate preaches a message of forgiveness

After being wrongly imprisoned for a murder he didn’t commit, Darryl Burton is using his story to preach about the power of hope and forgiveness. Burton served 24 years in prison for the 1984 murder of a St. Louis man but was released in 2008 after courts found his prosecution had been constitutionally flawed. He is now a congregational care pastor at United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood.
