The southern judicial system.
Glad to see he's getting out, even if he lost half of his life in there Hopefully he can live a normal life from here on out.
I don't no what the hell I would do if that was me 35 years!! man ohman
I would've gone crazy. 35 years and you know you didn't do anything wrong. Just horrible.
That is terrible. Says he had alibis, and he was still convicted. 35 years, wow....
just took a class on wrongful convictions this past quarter. People who were on death row but were then exonerated came in and talked to us. Youtube"Rolando Cruz Northwestern"
Heres a link to a wrongful convictions center that has a lot of these types of cases: Northwestern Center on Wrongful Convictions
Things I would do if that !#*% happened to me....He BETTER be getting PPPPPPPPAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIDDDDDD!!!!!!!
35 years? That's just horrible. I mean like they can't give him his life back, but at least give him a GREAT start. I think 20 Million would do thejob.
i wonder what percentage of the incarcerated are actually innocent
hopefully i get into the Innocence Project next year
I try and avoid stories like these because I legitimately get heated...
Somebody bout to get paid!
Unfortunately, a lot of the men who were wrongly accused and jailed for their crimes and who are then put back into society often find getting compensated forthe wrongful conviction very difficult. There is no federal standard for compensation. They also struggle to reintegrate back into society. After theirrelease, they find it extremely difficult to find work and reconnect with family. They are often also ostracized from the community because of their reputationthat has been tarnished. Some of them end up homeless. Something has to be done about this and there needs to be laws put in place to protect and compensatethose who have been exonerated.
these guys don't get very much only 500,000 i believe, that aint $*%#
i read this last night...
very sad...i hope he is able to get back on track easily...i'm sure it'll be hard tho...
Seriously get him his own little island.Horrible case
What's even worse is, who knows what he could have accomplished in 35 years had he not been in jail.
He could have made a vaccine for a disease or anything, possibilities are really endless.
Our judicial system sucks on stuff like this. We'd be better off with Dirty and Meth prosecuting cases in real life. Atleast they're fair.
Aren't we the only country in the world that spends the most money incarcerating people instead of actually rehabilitating them or giving those who deservedue process...DUE process? By the way, don't get me wrong I'm not pro giving people the get out of jail free card, but stories like this really make mewish we were reforming our legal system as well, this is atrocious albeit eye opening news.
x2..Im speechless ..
I hope he truly does get the compensation he is entitled to. But, I did read in some articles that the Florida laws are messed up when it comes to thecompensation to these types of cases and that they have denied exonerees their full compensation rights in some cases.
35 years for being in the house watching a tv show with his sister. SMH.
"What's jail, to rehabilitate, or to make a n_ worse, when he come home to catch another case.."
