Raw Video: Barry Beach addresses the media

Barry Beach, thanked God, the governor, his supporters, and the press during an emotional press conference outside the Montana State Prison in Deer Lodge on Nov. 20, 2015.

Beach said going back to prison 18 months ago, “was the worst experience in life.”

“It took me a couple years to overcome that moment,” Beach said. “This time there’s going to be a lot of healing and a lot of tears between hear and Billings Montana.”

Beach, who was released from prison after Gov. Steve Bullock commuted his 100-years-without parole prison sentence, said he always knew the day would come when he would be free.

Here is the raw video from Friday’s noon press conference. Due to the cold temperatures my camera ran out of battery about two minutes before the press conference ended.
