ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Missouri man who avoided prison because of a clerical error and led a law-abiding life for 13 years said he is overwhelmed by the support he's received since the story of his incarceration became public. Meanwhile, the Missouri attorney general signaled that he would look for a way to take Cornealious Anderson's many years of clean living into account in attempting to resolve the "difficult situation." Anderson was convicted in 2000 of armed robbery for holding up a restaurant manager in suburban St. Louis. But he was never formally ordered to report for his 13-year sentence.
