Maya Moore now wed, to wrongfully jailed man she helped free

NEW YORK (AP) — Basketball star Maya Moore has married Jonathan Irons, the Missouri man she helped work to free from prison after a 22-year-old wrongful conviction. Moore and Irons appeared together on ABC’s “Good Morning America” to discuss their social justice efforts and their relationship. Moore revealed the two were wed earlier this year, after Irons was released on July 1. Moore won four WNBA titles with the Minnesota Lynx. She put her career on hold in 2019 in part to devote more time to Irons’ cause. He was convicted as an 18-year-old on burglary and assault charges that were overturned in March.
