Exonerees will get $80,000 for each year they spent behind bars. Compensation includes lifetime annuity payments for the wrongly convicted worth between $40,000 and $50,000 a year -- making it by far the nation's most generous package.

". Though 27 other states have some form of compensation law for the wrongly convicted, none comes close to offering the social services and the AMOUNT OF MONEY Texas provides."

No wonder Gov. Perry asked for a government loan after he grandstanded and turned down the Stimulus money.

All the money in the world will not give these men back their lives. But I am glad they are getting this money. They deserve it. Thanks Phyllis.

I agree, but it is good to know that the States are being Penalized at least.
Hopefully they will get tired of giving away money, and find the actual 'Perpetrator' instead of going after easy targets.

Government Officials do not like giving away money.

Maybe they need to pay this money to the DA's and to the crime labs to do proper defense work and DNA testing. These innocent people deserve all of this money, but it will never replace the time they have lost.....

Thy should have to spend some time to the prosecutor for sending him up. The Prosecutors dont care who thy send up as long as thy get a convection any one to them!

Good news but too late for those wrongfully executed, no way to bring them back...how about doing away with the death penalty?

As Electra said, this is indeed "way-cool".
The money is the least that the state can
give these people...well, it's the only thing
they can give them.
Those who were innocent and executed can never
be repaid...it's too late for them, which is why
Texas needs to commute all death row inmates to
life, pending a review of their cases. If there are
(or were) innocent men on death row, they, too, need
to be freed and paid.
Phyllis, my dear friend and sister, thanks so much
for forwarding this story to me!
