How does it work in the states, do they get any financial compensation for their suffering? Not that a shit ton of money makes up for what they have been through, but its got to help a little.
This kind of shit pisses me off.
It really points to major problems with Prosecutorial misconduct across the country.
Here in Houston, there is the very famous case of Michael Morton.
His case was made into a documentary movie, An Unreal Dream: The Michael Morton Story and is on Netflix.
I bring it up because I was in contact with the lead trial attorney who ultimately freed the man.
What was even better was that the prosecutor had become a judge and ultimately lost his job, was disbarred
and spent time in jail when it came out that he knowingly withheld exculpatory evidence.
This case caused Texas to actually pass legislation that explicitly requires Prosecutors to turn over everything
and has real jail time as a punishment if they don't.
Most States only have administrative sanctions against Prosecutors who pull this shit.
I miss that Night Court show.
Mmmmmmmm Markie Post
They should not force inmates to wear those sweaters. It's cruel and unusual.
It's his christmas sweater from 1987!
The amount varies widely from state to state. That amount comes with the condition that they waive any right to sue. If they refuse it, they get nothing and have to sue for it, but likely get more money if they win.
Ops a dink
Prisoners are guilty
They could have broke out of prison and formed an A Team to help other people in bad situations
This goes down in the Oppppppps we are sorry category. Or ya can't win them all.

if you've nothing to hide and done nothing wrong then you have no reason to fear the police
or some shit like that
The men won their freedom after a witness last year recanted his testimony from the trial, saying he was coerced by detectives at the time. Ajamu was originally sentenced to death, but it was vacated because of a paperwork error.
lucky for this guy that the two cops who helped to frame him also seem to have been too stupid to kill him
and of course there's at least one killer out there that these detectives let walk
there's a family that is still denied justice for the loved one they lost
that's some fine work there officers
It is so foreign to me the thought of framing someone. What's the motivation? Just unreal.
some states actually charge the wrongly accused for room and board/ and others service ...
He can too but he has to cock hid head to the right
