2. Here is a ABC News article:
'West Memphis Three' Go Free; DNA Evidence Feeds Doubts

The release today of the so-called West Memphis Three frees them to "clear our names" after surviving an "absolute living hell," two of the men said.

"I'm just tired," Jesse Misskelley Jr. said at a news conference after the hearing at which a a judge accepted a plea deal to set them free. "This has been going on for 18 years. "It's been an absolute living hell."

One of their lawyers said the men's release is "evidence of the state's recognition that they are innocent" and that "no jury would convict them at a new trial."

The judge sentenced them to the 18 years they've already served so they can go home today. They will be on suspended sentences for 10 years -- not probation -- which could be revoked if they get into trouble.
