Man hugs and reunites with family after 34 years in prison

Sidney Holmes was 23 years old when he was given a 400-year sentence for being the suspected driver in an armed robbery. He was released from prison after serving more than 34 years.

A Florida judge scrubbed his sentence after Holmes proved he was wrongfully identified in a police line-up. There had been no direct evidence against him at the time of his conviction.
