After spending more than three decades behind bars, Mary Virginia Jones is finally free.

Jones was sent to prison in 1982 after she was convicted in the fatal shooting of two drug dealers, even though she didn't pull the trigger. Her boyfriend at the time, Mose Willis, did.

The 74-year-old woman was released earlier this week thanks to work done by USC Law School's Post Conviction Justice Project. Mary Jones and her attorney Heidi Rummel join Take Two to talk about her experience.
