ATLANTA, GA — Tyler Perry offered a job to a man who had been serving a life sentence since 1991, reports WSB-TV. The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office launched The Conviction Integrity Unit and heard of 52-year-old Darrell Hall’s case last year. In December they went to court to end his sentence and bring him home. On Wednesday at a banquet to celebrate the new unit, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard surprised Hall with the news.
“Mr. Perry says you can start to work on Monday,” the DA told Hall from the stage, says the station. He was handed a piece of paper with a name and phone number of a man who Perry said could fill him in on the new job. Howard didn’t say what the job would be.
