Judge Rules Mo. Man Won't Have To Serve 13-Year Prison Term

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Mike Anderson of Missouri was ready to do time. He was convicted for his role in a robbery. Due to a clerical error, he was never told to report to prison. Anderson waited year after year and even reminded the state - hello? prison term. He went on with life, started a business, got married and had kids. After 13 years, the state found its mistake. But now a judge has freed Anderson, citing his exemplary behavior. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
