I completely agree that this law should pass! This man deserves so much more than $25,000 for all the time he spent in prison for a crime he did not commit. Part of this man's life was taken from him for no reason. I understand that he was convicted before the latest and greatest DNA technology was in use but that doesn't make what happened to him acceptable. All states is America should provide at least some financial compensation for those wrongfully incarcerated. It's just common courtesy. This law should not only pass for this man but for others just like him. This is more than a one cause law.
