How Maya Moore met Jonathan Irons?
Maya Moore’s activism in the Iron case started late in their relationship. When she was 18, she was first exposed to family in Missouri who were involved in the prison ministry. He presents Iron’s case to Moore and she approaches him. The two became fast friends and had a strong relationship for over a decade. In 2019, Moore announced to the basketball world that he would be skipping the WNBA season to focus on ministry and outreach. This continued when Moore announced in 2020 that he would once again skip the season and focus on criminal justice reform.
The system knew he had blamed the wrong man, he used his fame in court to raise awareness of his friend’s plight, to work tirelessly on the public stage, and to overcome the court system. The case was again investigated by a judge. This year, the couple finally got their wish. On July 2, Judge Daniel Green overturned Iron’s sentence, saying that in the prosecution’s case, there were a number of problems, citing the alleged fingerprint report. Jonathan Irons was independent after 23 years in prison and he knew who to thank.
