NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Ray Krone was sentenced to death for a murder he didn't commit.

On Wednesday, spoke at Belmont University as a free man.

Krone is the 100th person to be exonerated from death row in the U.S. after spending more than 10 years in prison.

At Belmont, he shared his story and talked about problems in the criminal justice system.

"I am fortunate again, though, that there are still people within this system that do truly seek the truth," he said.

Krone was originally convicted of murder in 1991. He maintained his innocence until DNA evidence set him free in 2002.
