This August Terrell please terminal. Story here. Who has all the buttons you. We've been doing that for ten years and an average of soul. Story here from the Associated Press. New Kansas global Greg cash compensation to wrongly convicted residence for time served. Behind bars following three high profile releases of three innocent defendants in three years. Governor Jeff caught your signed legislation today. That says if a guilty verdict is overturned. The person who was wrongfully convicted is eligible for 65000. Dollars. For each year of incarceration. The law takes effect in July and makes Kansas the 33 state with such a policy. The innocence project were to lawmakers in drafting the bill is pleased with the result legislative strategist crucial Feldman. Called kansas' law eight gold standard. She's and other states laws have shortcomings in Kansas learned what twelve. So Scott other states tell us. Have not worked and so in Kansas they looked. Add all of these other states aren't they said let's figure out what's working in those states what's not working in those states. And in craft a law in Kansas believe it or not. That is fair as fair as you can be when you kidnap someone and take their life with for twenty years. And we'll help them get back on their feet when they get out and remember. Prior to this law. If you imprison someone for twenty years thirty years they got school why when they got out that's right no services no health insurance no. I mean it's got so these guys to back it up bodies so not eat we eat they just pat them on the back and said yep. Very they've never bogey free yeah so let's say you an here's a great question I think US's during the break and is it retroactive. But the three people who've had their convictions overturned in Kansas in the last three years. One of them I believe was serving life in prison with no chance for parole. Our day yes Graham I cutting grant you are an enemy does not that many of and so one of those guys was at 28 years. We saw from him. Let's just shells that sounds are what 28 years and 65000 dollars a year and right now. He would receive one point eight million dollar now is attacks for it. Now I hope yes it would have to be I hope what do that they have someone with the innocence project or somewhere. To sit down with these guys and say OK one point five million dollars sounds like the most money you've ever heard of in your entire life it is not. It is to get you on your feet this is restitution for what he stole. We are now offering. Jobs services I think they get a year free health insurance just trying to get them going. But these guys come out Scott and they are lost. And I mentioned Missouri with some of the strike and believe this yeah. They talk about all of the crap laws that are out there with different states and what they say. There are caps on some album there are. Like Nebraska there's a 500000 dollar cap. So you still forty years of someone's life. Your 500 grand jury is still yours someone's life you're getting five program listen to what does or does this is infuriating to me. Missouri task compensation. For those wrongfully convicted. But it only old war the money. If they guilty verdict is overturned. By DNA evidence which the story says does not happen in most cases so let me get this straight Missouri. You're gonna steal thirty years of some guy's life. And in on the thirtieth year with this skies in for rape and murder another man steps forward and says. I did it. But in Mayo I did it it was me. I killed that woman and six others. It was me. Missouri. By the law as it is written in the state of Missouri would know that wrongfully imprisoned man. Nath saying. And let me show you something let's say you put a man away from. 28 years when he's twenty years old. Okay. And he's wrongfully convicted his lost all of his greatest years he goes to Jeff twining it's out of 48. He is a bread winning years his years to make a family. Find somebody to settle down with that they're they're pretty much lost not ruin but there definitely. Lost you one point eight million dollars okay yeah lets say he lives for another thirty years so he lives to be the age of 78 okay. This is how much he can spend in that money if it's tax free per year per year. So is it easy I. Thousand dollars livable wage certainly available definitely a livable wage but you're not gonna go in Basra rot but he's contributed nothing to Social Security. That's kissing one of the guys said. I would be better off prior to Islam one of the wrongfully accused guys said I would have been better off in prison at least there. You get three meals a day. You get health care you get the job training I could go get a lot of grief I want to when when they kick you loose after mistake like this that was no law on the books to compensate you. You're right not only do you not have any money. No resume no job no discernible skill have no savings you have no 401K you have no social secure. It. And don't go spent more than sixty dollar 60000 dollars a year. I'm not sniff at 60000 dollars a year that's a good wage but it's not when you hear one point five million. It's not an eagle by house in the Hamptons but don't go don't go live in past 78. From the text line. I'm exceedingly torn by this reimbursement for wrongful imprisonment yes I think it is fair that they get paid something for having been put in jail when they are innocent. But my Sunday ride is a sergeant at Fort Bragg he has worked hard to get Aureus. And he does not make 65000 dollars a year. He also didn't lose twenty years of his life primary by ten so going to lose the best years of his life being confined is in voluntarily and wrongfully by the state. In these men have lost. Our our estranged and or lost contact with. Parents who have either died. Or are out of the picture with children. Who never knew them I use it to Scott you cannot put a price. And I know Kansas has tried. You can't put a price on that you can't. I I'm not even 48 years old so imagine. I gearing damn tee I don't have one point eight million dollars that's for sure. But in in the years that I've been working at this radio station I've been able to generate a decent for a one K by putting way a lot of money. As much money is like cam with a match from the corporation. I I've been able to put together savings. For my kids through college hopefully. I've also been able to buy a house and part of it down. You've been able to have a relationship with your girls. Not through some plexiglass wall. You decide something that really. Disturbed me and even thought of this. If I was at the age of 25 years old convicted of crime that I was innocent of the thing that would break my heart the most would be that my father. Thought I did that right. And that he might die before they overturn it. Knowing damn good well that I didn't do wit it I am innocent let's run I would imprisonment twenty twos. My father would have died knowing that I was in prison for a crime that maybe I committed. And my dad died it's your my father died twenty years ago. Your father is anything like mine. The fact that you got convicted of it means you did it. I don't care what you say. Some wants context find you have to prove prosecutorial misconduct no this is for the actual. Wrongfully. Convicted it doesn't matter how they were wrongfully convicted although I would say in a majority of these cases when it is they were truly. Wrongful conviction or where the state has essentially kidnapped a one for 2030 years of their life for something they did not do. There is usually misconduct and you don't have to look far to find it. Either exculpatory evidence that was hidden from the defense. I don't wanna say in every case. In a lot of cases there is misconduct this law does not say there has to be misconduct. To pay out this award. 76779. It would get to your calls your comments this moment indirect route Babcock.

Warranty yeah. I'm a native arts program. 5767798. If you guys want to wait we'll try to get reviews camp before via. Top of the hour the new Kansas law signed today by governor called your. Would allow our ward I guess tomes were or were used there. Would award. Those who were wrongfully convicted wrongfully imprison. With 65000. Dollars a year for each year they were incarcerate. So for example if you were imprisoned like one person ones. For 28 years in Kansas prison when you get out and I'm assuming. This would be tax free but I don't know that for a fact. You would receive one point eight million dollars. Let's say you lived another thirty years. Don't go spend a more than 60000 dollar wrong. Because when your 78 NC get out of forty. And put in prison at twining. For accrediting commit. When your 78 you will be running out of money. I am not saying Kansas doesn't have the right idea. When I'm wondering is is 65000 dollars enough and so we just called me and it's been trying better than it was. It was yeah it was zero prior to today. So we just call me or rhino for this for my thoughts on this on the techs like rival for what for believing that people should not be wrongfully. Put imprisoned. And that people who are wrongfully put imprisoned by their own government. Deserves some sort of compensation for that makes me Republican in name only. I'm proud to samurai know. Because if the State's people is not in stories like this until it's them or someone. And that you better pay up I doubt. I've 76779. Adam in Kansas City out of buried or do quite well thank you. Great I called back awhile ago and it's something to for the nice comment you are in the bar there called and spoke about that. In Oregon up here in the right thing return appreciated. When it comes to paying the 65000. For the the people. Week that conflict a large number elect a lady who said my government reports cracked the topic that much money. Kurt and had a chance to live that life to make whatever you may look we're grateful for the poor countries that person in the Sacramento doctor a warrior could cure cancer. Here in the evening we don't know who pick it by now than. In the drop in the bucket because they could you pick a 300000. Dollar a year. There were giving him. Make up and say hey you elected government fraud that's why. I was saying that some on the text line earlier it's a good point and that that. I don't know how they came to this number. But you have to remember maybe there's a guy out there who would have made twenty or 30000 dollars a year. The could also be someone out there who would've made 203 and you just. You don't know because you've robs them of all of their earning years as well as their saving potential during those earning year. And at an early focusing on the financial. What else have you rob them now cause the best years of their life arguably in the opportunity to start a family. Or maybe with the incarceration the wrongful incarceration. You broke up a family. We don't know. Edit this makes me some sort of bleeding heart liberal that I feel sorry for people who are wrongfully convicted. And wrongfully sent to prison by their own government. Economic bleeding heart liberal. And Matt makes me a full. But when the government takes away your freedom. They need to be damn sure there are doing right. And I think. Sometime. I think we just assume if the government is bringing charges against you. You have to be guilt. You must be guilty the government wouldn't bring charges against you if you weren't. Well yes it does. Sometimes the government gets it wrong. Still the key word cash it is eyes EYESES. Yes YE EE YE ES. That is your Q were to cash this hour what was the joke about that a couple of years ago in.
