On November 12, 2013, Ryan Ferguson was released from prison after 9 years, 8 months and 2 days. Ryan Ferguson is a free man. He has now begun the long journey of healing after losing nearly ten years of his life. Unfortunately, Charles Erickson remains wrongfully convicted, and is currently serving a 25 year prison sentence in Missouri for the murder of Kent Heitholt. Anyone that supports Ryan Ferguson should support the release of Charles Erickson.
