This seems like a pretty reasonable proposal.
Wisconsin exonerees are entitled to only a fraction of that amount, and only under certain circumstances. Today, compensation is capped at $5,000 per year of incarceration for up to five years — a maximum of $25,000. Under the terms of the new proposal, wrongfully convicted people would receive the federally recommended $50,000 per year, with a cap of $1 million.
Sounds like a good deal.
There might be an incentive to sign up for this deal.
