TUCSON, ARIZONA- A man who spent 43 years in prison on a dubious conviction enjoyed his first hours of freedom taking a walk and having a hamburger. Louis Taylor was released after doubts about his conviction surfaced for the 1970 fire at a hotel that killed 29 people. He was sentenced to life. He had to enter a no contest plea in order to be freed. He says the world has changed in the time he went to prison and he struggled to use what he called an "Apple telephone."
