    • (Narration at the end of the episode) Narrator: Leo Vardosch walked into the outside world almost exactly 11 years after he had been convicted. On his back he wore a new suit, in his pants pocket was a ten dollar bill almost a dollar a year for time served. Sometime later Anton Budenieff was also pardoned and so because of a mother's faith and one reporter's refusal to admit defeat another small battle was won on behalf of Human Decency.
