Innocent And Broke

Nobody really talks about the financial devastation caused by a wrongful criminal prosecution, but it’s one of the primary features.

It often extends to the innocent person’s family.

Yet courts are very reluctant to allow exonerees any compensation, rationalizing with decisions that would be called recondite if they weren’t beyond that into the realm of the unintelligible.

Ugh.
