Josh Released from Jail!

After 263 days of unjust incarceration, dozens of supporters greeted Josh as he exited the jail shortly after midnight on Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2015. His first order of business was to give a big hug to his wife, Brenda, followed by greetings and thanks to supporters in attendance. Today, after 613 days without being able to kiss or hug Naomi, Josh will finally have his first contact visit with his beloved daughter.

This is both a happy and a sad time for the Burns family. It is sad in that Josh must live apart from his family for an unspecified time as he participates in the family reunification therapy.

Josh continues his quest for exoneration through the appeals process, which is now in the capable hands of the Michigan Innocence Clinic from the University of Michigan Law School. This fight is not over. We cherish your continued support in the days ahead. Please continue to follow the Burns story.
