Brandon Olebar and his daughter, Creation, both share something in common: Their new lives are just beginning.
Olebar, 31, was released from prison after serving ten years for a burglary and robbery he didn't commit. On Friday, he became the first person to claim a financial award from the state legislature under a new law passed to compensate innocent people sent to prison.
Creation, 30 days old, was born almost exactly nine months after the University of Washington Innocence Project helped set her dad free.
