Wrongful Conviction Compensation
Michigan would compensate those who were convicted of a crime they didn’t commit under a bill that passed a House committee.
According to Michiganradio.org, if someone was thrown in prison and they were innocent, they would be entitled to $60,000 a year for every year they were behind bars under this legislation.
The program could cost the state upwards of $15 million a year. The bill now awaits a vote in the full House.
