CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A die-hard Cavalier fan, who hasn't seen a live game in decades, got to go to the "Q" Tuesday night.

Raymond Towler, who was just released from prison last week, sat courtside courtesy of the Cavs.

Towler was released after prosecutors admitted, they made a huge mistake by holding him behind bars for 30 years for a rape he did not commit.

The Cavs treated Towler and his brother and sisters to tickets to the game.

In addition to that, he got to meet Cavs GM Danny Ferry who presented him with a personalized jersey.

Raymond tells 19 Action News that he hasn't done much since he's been out, he's still getting used to being free.

"I haven't really been living yet, just taking care of business. The simple things like getting a birth certificate, social security number, buying a new pair of socks. I didn't bring anything with me, I'm happy at this point. I'm a low maintenance guy. All that's been given to me us just awesome," said Raymond Towler.

Before the game Towler got to shoot some baskets and he actually made a three pointer.
