SAN ANTONIO, Texas – They didn't get to watch their children grow up into young adults. They missed saying goodbye to grandparents, and in one case, a father, before those loved ones passed away.
But three women who were released from prison on Monday after spending more than a decade behind bars – for crimes they say they didn't commit – said they relished their new-found freedom and would continue fighting for their full exoneration.
"I got to meet my son for the first time since he was 4," said Liz Ramirez, 39, who along with the other women spoke with NBC News on Tuesday in their first interview since their release. "It was an amazing feeling, being in his arms."
