That is cool Shock , but nothing in front of 31 years jail.

A Tennessee man wrongly jailed for more than 31 years has been awarded $1 million from the state.
Lawrence McKinney, 61, of Wilson County was exonerated after new DNA evidence led to his Please, keep it clean this type of discussion does not belong on CPA Elites. and burglary conviction being overturned.
McKinney then set out to receive the legal maximum of $1 million for wrongful imprisonment, which was granted by the Tennessee Board of Claims on Wednesday.
McKinney's 1978 conviction in Memphis was overturned in 2009, and he was released from prison. An attorney said McKinney was given $75 upon release from prison.
"All my 20s and all my 30s and 40s, they were taken away from me,” McKinney said in a previous interview with FOX 17 News. “I didn't have a chance to build something for myself."
McKinney couldn't seek compensation until Gov. Bill Haslam exonerated him on Dec. 20.

It seems to me that the state should be responsible for the attorney fees in addition to the payout.

No amount of money can replace the life they took from him.

I wonder if they gave him money at will or he had to sue them first.
