ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- News 4 cameras were rolling this afternoon when a couple said  “I Do,” in a ceremony 17 years, and one overturned conviction in the making.

As the Etta James song “At Last” played, Patricia Jackson walked down the aisle to her love David Robinson

The two wanted to get married a law office overlooking the Arch because the lawyers that work there made the day possible for the couple

Robinson was released from prison on May 15th after being wrongly convicted for murder. He was originally given a life sentence and had already served 17 years of it.

For a couple who has been in love for more than 30 years, but separated by bars for half of it.

“That's where we're going to start today,” Jackson said. “This is our new beginning”

The month came together in a month, and the two celebrated a future of joy and freedom with optimism.

“Days after prison, a new chapter of my life begins,” Robinson said. “There is no excuse for me to stay sad.”
