PBS NewsHour published a short documentary last year about state laws governing compensation for the wrongfully accused and how many of these states offer nothing to those exonerated, including Drew Whitley, who spent 18 years in prison after being wrongfully convicted of murder.

Back in 1977, Dewey Bozella was wrongfully convicted of murder. There was no DNA evidence linking him to the crime, only false testimonies given by two acquaintances.

He spent 26 years in prison and received a $7.5 million settlement.

Thought I'd share this again:

"In 1982, a man in Louisiana spent 14 years on death row after being falsely convicted of murder. While facing his seventh execution date, a blood test, eyewitness reports, and other evidence hidden by at least 4 prosecutors were later revealed, ultimately leading to this man’s freedom. After suing the District Attorney’s Office, a jury awarded him $14 million, $1 million for each year on death row."
