Byron is present for an evidentiary hearing in the same courtroom of the Jackson County Circuit Court where the trial took place. The main points argued by Byron's lawyer involve the violation of Byron's Fifth Amendment rights when the June 5, 2001, phone conversation between him and Kelly was admitted into evidence (since authorities used Kelly Moffett to get around his previously invoked right to an attorney).

In conjunction with their production of "The Exonerated," Kansas City's Unicorn Theatre presents a month-long exhibit of Byron's photography: "Afterimages." Thakns to Web, of The Frame Gallery, for matting and framing the pieces, and to theater manager Cynthia Levin, for opening the Unicorn's lobby to Byron's images. Last, but by no means least, congratulations to the fine case, for a brilliant series of performances. Everyone's warmth is very much appreciated.
