how much for a wrongful conviction?
Louisiana paying wrongfully convicted, but is it enough?
"While nearly two dozen states don’t compensate exonerees at all, Louisiana has a statute that entitles people like Thompson to $25,000 per year of wrongful incarceration — capped at $250,000 — plus up to $80,000 for “loss of life opportunities.”
