Hinton spent nearly 30 years on Death Row for a Birmingham crime he did not commit. In 1985, he was arrested and charged with two counts of capital murder after investigators said a gun found at his mother’s home was used in two Birmingham homicides.

Hinton's book is called "The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row."
