Yes, darsavmo, as I mentioned - a huge sum owed. I am appalled Arizona weasled out of it. Heinous.
How can Arizona ever make the barest claim to mercy in jurisprudence? How can Arizona redeem itself for having meted out 40 years of torture on an innocent soul?
Bump all. Good point Darsavmo.
I'm guessing that pleading NC expedited his release, but that may also seve as a loophole for the state which prevents someone wrongfully convicted from suing?
What really is shameful that he had to plea No Contest to get out of prison instead of being released on bail while waiting for a new trial to clear his name...
We as police should remember this man's wrongful imprisonment! I had a case where all the stars aligned to place an innocent man in prison. I had a rock solid case against this guy, eyewitness identification, photo lineup, a previous arrest in the area etc. etc. However, after finding and taken this man into custody my gut said it was not him who committed the crime. Thank God! I followed my instincts and dug a little more and arrested the right guy who looked nothing like the innocent guy. could not have lived with that knowledge of sending an innocent to jail even for one night! Shame on Arizona! Bump all!!!
Very sad! The Court proceedures and All the people involved in this travesty of justice even though many are probably gone need to be looked at ! ONE Innocent person in jail is to many!
Sorry for the headline. I was in mid-edit. Apparently PL News submits if you hit the "Enter" button on your keyboard!
American society sees this grave error every so often. It breaks everyone's heart. The video is hard to watch because you see Louis Taylor's pain and outrage because he is not exonerated from the crime of murder. He could not even emerge with the dignity of his record expunged, let alone the huge sum Arizona owes him for taking 40 years of Taylor's life.
Although innocent, Taylor had to plead 'No Contest' to gain release without having to go through the trial process again. I am deeply moved.
