About Miles of Freedom
Richard Miles spent 15 years in a Texas prison as result of a wrongful conviction. He was released from prison in 2009 due to the work of Centurion Ministries in Princeton NJ. Even after his release he spend over years on bond as he fought his conviction and consequently was labeled as an ex-felon. This label prevented him from getting a job, securing housing, and making all the necessary adjustments to living and thriving after incarceration. Finally, in 2012 the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals reversed his conviction and declared him "truly" innocent. It was then the Miles of Freedom the non for profit was born. Miles of freedom stands as an organization dedicated to supporting individual and families as they work navigate re-entry into society and work from prison to promise.  MOF understands that reducing recidivism and creating safer communities mean "holistic" reentry services. Holistic services focus on the individuals needs of those impacted by incarceration and support the families and communities in which they will return and live.
