The 30-year-old Hingham man who was held in prison in Iran for 41 days is speaking out about his experience.

Matt Trevithick flew to Boston 10 days ago. Although he was never publicly charged, he says prison authorities told him he was accused him of trying to overthrow the Iranian government.

When we spoke with him — in one of his first public interviews — we asked him what it feels like to be home.

You’re blindfolded whenever you leave the room, pushed and pulled by the escorts."
