Man adjust to new life after 3 decades in prison
Once convicted of murder, Montana man adjusts to life after 3 decades behind bars
By The Associated Press

HELENA, Mont. (AP) ' Barry Beach is adjusting to a whole new world after spending 29 years in prison for a Montana murder he says he did not commit.

A judge released Beach last week after deciding that new evidence cast doubts on whether Beach is really to blame for the 1979 murder of a teenage girl in the small town of Poplar.

Supporters continue to flock to Beach, whose case for innocence has been aided by influential backers in Montana along with a New Jersey-based innocence group that helped publicize his case.

But prosecutors aren't ceding the case.

The state attorney general's office will be asking the Montana Supreme Court to reverse a lower court order for a new trial, hoping to restore Beach's original sentence and send him back to prison.
