SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Four San Antonio women released after questions arose about their convictions in a well-known 1994 sexual assault case say they hope their case will inspire others in prison.

The "San Antonio 4" appeared as a group to talk to reporters Wednesday.

Three of the four women were released from jail Monday after a judge agreed with their attorney and prosecutors that their convictions should no longer stand. The fourth was paroled last year. Prosecutors agree their convictions are questionable due to faulty expert testimony.

One of the three women released, Cassandra Rivera, credits her faith in God for sustaining her during almost two decades behind bars.

Anna Vasquez, paroled last year, says she hopes to see nieces and nephews she couldn't meet due to sex offender restrictions.
