Wrongful Conviction Compensation Statutes

Bella Larby Compensation statutes are in place within some states to provide funds and support services to people that have been wrongfully incarcerated. Other states do not have a current statute, but even those that have such a statute often place restrictions on who is eligible for compensation. In some states, the person could not have pled guilty to the crime or had a prior felony conviction. Other restrictions include a limit on the amount of money to be awarded or the necessity for the wrongfully convicted person to be released due to DNA testing.
