MO Considers Compensating Wrongly-Convicted People

1 decade 4 years 4 months ago Wednesday, April 05 2006 Apr 5, 2006 Wednesday, April 05, 2006 1:06:41 PM CDT April 05, 2006 in News
Missouri law provides that anyone exonerated by DNA evidence gets $50 compensation for each day wrongly spent in prison after conviction. But, the state pays people who are only released after Aug. 28, 2003 when the law took effect. Although the state released Steve Toney in 1996, he said he should be compensated because his case helped lead to the restitution law after he was wrongly convicted of rape and sodomy in 1983. Toney testified for a bill that would compensate anyone cleared of a felony by DNA evidence, no matter when the exoneration occurred.
