Ryan Ferguson home in Columbia after court vacates conviction in sports editor’s death

After eight years in prison, Ryan Ferguson was a free man Tuesday night, once the Missouri attorney general’s office declined to retry him in the 2001 murder of a Columbia newspaper editor. “To get arrested and to get charged for a crime you didn’t commit is incredibly easy, and you lose your life very fast,” Ferguson said at a news conference. “But to get out of prison, it takes an army.”
