Justin Wolfe's family and supporters had high hopes that he would come home on Friday. Instead, a Prince William County Circuit Court judge ordered that Wolfe—whose murder conviction was vacated last year—.
Family members cried quietly and held on to each other after the decision.
"Justin has spent 11 years in solitary confinement for a crime he didn't commit, and it's time for him to come home," said his mother, Terri Steinberg, outside the courthouse.
Lindsay Steinberg, who was four years old when her brother Justin Wolfe was incarcerated, said she was disappointed.
"It's hard to see that he won't be coming home today, but I just hope that he will be home in time for my sixteenth birthday," Lindsay said.
"It's my birthday wish."
