"We don’t believe this was an eyewitness that did anything purposeful or malicious," Anderson clarified, but added that their identifications need to be evaluated early on. "It was on that identification that he was convicted."

Miller said he doesn't necessarily have any anger toward the state of Utah, but thinks its laws should be changed. He didn't specify as to how, but he pointed out the impact of the 2009 change that allowed for a determination of his innocence.

"They made one change in the law and they help out two people," Miller said. "Maybe they could change more."

For the time being, Miller is working part-time doing landscaping and grounds keeping work for Salt Lake County. He'll keep doing that until he can return to Louisiana.

"I got other things I have to do," he said. "When I leave here, I want to be nice and clean."
