Daryl Dwayne Holloway was released Wednesday from the Green Bay Correctional Institution after spending more than 20 years in prison for crimes he didn't commit.
 
Outside the prison Wednesday morning, Holloway spoke with reporters about his release. 
 
 
During his talk with reporters, Holloway said he hopes to find work and wants to pursue a career in law. 
 
His plan for his first day of freedom included going to buy new clothes at the store and a steak lunch. 
 
 A Milwaukee County judge signed an order Tuesday vacating Daryl Dwayne Holloway's 1993 convictions on sexual assault and armed burglary.
 
The 48-year-old Holloway was sentenced to 120 years in prison. He's due to be released Wednesday.
 
New DNA testing conducted after the Wisconsin Innocence Project worked on the case found he couldn't have committed the crimes.
