They're free!
 
Legally, they are still guilty, but they are now free with a suspended sentence. They cannot sue the state and they probably can't talk about the particulars of the deal that was made to free them.
 
The state gets to save face by closing the case and avoiding a new trial which they knew would end with an acquittal based on DNA evidence.
