Originally sentenced to more than six life terms in prison for his part in an armed robbery, Travion Blount was never supposed to be released.
But there he was Thursday, walking out of Greensville Correctional Center in Jarratt.
“Hey, ma,” Blount, 29, said before embracing his mother for the first time since he was 15.
“It’s been so long,” Angela Blount responded as she choked back tears.
