Man gets $21m compensation for wrongful conviction after 39 years

A man from California identified as  Craig Coley will be compensated $21 million for his 39 years of wrongful incarceration in the 1978 murders of Rhonda Wicht and her 4-year-old son, Donald.

According to the City manager, Eric Levitt;“While no amount of money can make up for what happened to Mr. Coley, settling this case is the right thing to do for him and our community.”

He also added that going to trial would be costly and irresponsible.
