How horrific, all his youthful years lost and can never be recovered.

This cases make one really wonder about identification evidence, especially such a positive identification as that was.

I can honestly say that i am truly sickened by what happened to this man. All of those years lost and wasted in prison. Behind bars with real rapists and murderers.

Our criminal justice system simply has to do better!

It's a well known fact that eyewitness testimony is not a very reliable evidence. In this case it was a testimony from a child. Juries usually want to believe the children. What a horrible thing to have happened to this man.
Nothing is going to give him back the 20 years he spend in prison.

Maybe he should be paid $2 million dollars in exchange for dropping the charges.

I hope you're not joking. This isn't a subject to joke about. This man lost his youth for nothing, and is free only by the grace of GOD!

And now this man is entitled to the whole 20 grands for every year he spend in prison. Which means he should get 360,000$ for 18 years. Oh my.
I mean, seriously, is this anywhere near enough for the wrongful incarceration and loss of the best years of his life?

free only by the grace of GOD!

Also free because people paid attention to DNA evidence and not their own personal metanarrative.
