In 1987, Michael Morton was sentenced to life in prison for murdering his wife – a crime he didn’t commit. He served 25 years before having his conviction overturned. Monday on Think, he told Krys Boyd that for many of those years, his life was ruled by resentment and thoughts of revenge.

Michael Morton’s new book is called Getting Life: An Innocent Man’s 25-Year Journey from Prison to Peace. He’ll sign copies of it Tuesday night at 7 at the Barnes & Noble on Northwest Highway in Dallas. Be sure to listen to the entire interview from Monday's show.

Stephen Becker is senior producer of the Think show , which airs on more than 25 stations across Texas and beyond. Prior to joining the Think team in 2013, as part of the Art&Seek team, Stephen produced radio and digital stories and hosted "The Big Screen" — a weekly radio segment about North Texas film — with Chris Vognar. His 2011 story about the history of eight-track tapes was featured nationally on NPR's All Things Considered. His works has been recognized with numerous state and national awards.
