Tim Cole's Family. Fort Worth, Texas. © Allison V. Smith

A week and a half ago I photographed Tim Cole's family beside his grave in Fort Worth, Texas for USA Today. Cole was wrongfully convicted of a rape in 1985 and died in prison in 1999. Yesterday, 24 years after his wrongful conviction, he was exonerated. I am glad I had a chance to meet his family and be a part of telling their story, and I am extremely relieved for them as well.
