Compensation after exoneration and access to services

Exonerees should not have to wait for years to be compensated and should be compensated for EVERY year they are wrongly imprisoned. The existing caps on compensation laws in Louisiana and Mississippi should be lifted. Exonerees should be compensated at least $100,000 per year for every year they are wrongly imprisoned.

Upon being released from prison they should also have immediate, state-funded medical treatment and counseling as well as financial stipends to cover food, transport and housing until a full compensation award can be paid.
