The purpose of this petition is to ask for your support and to demonstrate to the PA Legislators that a Compensation Bill for the exonerated is supported by the constituency. We need bipartisan legislative support. Currently there are bills in the Pennsylvania Legislature House of Representatives and Senate to compensate exonerated prisoners. These bills are written to compensate exonerated persons in Pennsylvania. House of Representative Bill is HB 765 and Senate Bill SB 714. These bills outline the following compensation. (b) Damages.--If the court finds that the claimant was 4 wrongfully convicted and imprisoned, it shall award damages as 5 follows: 6 (1) not less than $50,000 for each year of 7 incarceration, with an additional $50,000 for each year for years served on Death Row. I entreat all that receive this petition to sign it in support of compensating the wrongfully convicted. Help rectify what has been suffered by the wrongfully convicted. Please include your county, city, and state. I request that you pass this petition on, you support is desperately needed.
My youngest son has been wrongly convicted in the state of PA, so I have a very personal interest in this bill.
my family member was imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. it cost us a fortune to show that he was framed. no compensation what so ever!
