After nearly 40 years, Montana Innocence Project client Bernard Pease Jr. left prison on January 4 and was transferred to the pre-release center in Billings. He was granted parole subject to an extended pre-release stay late last year.

He spoke about his anxiety around new experiences, getting to see his sister Linda with fewer restrictions, and his hopes of working in the fishing guide industry.
