The road to becoming a lawyer was not easy for Jarrett Adams but he made it.

At 17-years-old he was sentenced to a 28-year prison term for a crime he didn’t commit. After being exonerated, he attended law school and now he is officially a NYC lawyer.

Sunnyskyz reports:

Sprung from prison through efforts by the the Wisconsin Innocence Project, Adams entered Loyola University Law School and graduated last year. His wife took a job in New York City, and Adams got a job there as a post-conviction litigation fellow with the Innocence Project there.

“I put my mind to it. I put my work behind it. I put God first, and now look at me,” Adams told CBS Chicago.

We wish you the best Jarrett!
