About our guest Richard Miles:

At the age of 19, Richard was wrongly arrested and sentenced to 60 years for murder and aggravated assault. In 2007, an innocence organization accepted Richard’s case and he was released from prison on October 12, 2009. On February 15, 2012, the Court of Criminal Appeals ruled unanimously and granted Actual Innocence. Ex parte Miles, 359 S.W.3d 647 (Tex. Crim. App. 2012).

The ruling granted Richard compensation under Texas law. In June of 2012, Richard made an initial seed investment to start Miles of Freedom. “Miles” is the acronym for (Motivating Inspiring Law-abiding Enthusiastic Successful). The mission of Miles of Freedom is to provide holistic support for individuals, families and communities impacted by incarceration. Richard’s story has been featured on the Larry King Show, TV, a documentary, and multiple news/media outlets.

In 2019, Richard Miles shared the international stage as one of the Top 10 CNN Heroes. Most notably, on September 1, 2021, the Richard Miles Act was passed in Texas. This law addresses the accountability and timely disclosure of evidence as it relates to arresting officer/agencies. Richard is enrolled at Paul Quinn College working on his bachelor’s in business administration. Richard serves on the boards of God’s Holy Church of Christ, Dallas Sheriff Community Partnership, Centurion Innocence Organization, and Power in Action.

Richard’s life is now filled with his faith in God, family support, wife Latoya Miles and two beautiful daughters Raelyn and Aubreigh Miles. Richard’s future seems to have many more “miles of freedom”. For more information about Miles of Freedom visit
