Man who spent 24yrs in Jail, compensated 1.2 million dollars

Alan Crotzer
, the man who spent 24 years in jail for a rape he didn’t commit, will finally get what’s coming to him. The Florida Senate voted Thursday to pay him $1.25 million in compensation.

He was originally convicted in 1982, and had to wait until 2006 for DNA evidence to clear his name. Crotzer is also eligible for a free state education - something he says he plans to take advantage of.
