Default Quiz: Compensating the Wrongfully Convicted in America

Quiz: Compensating the Wrongfully Convicted in America

"The unique horror of wrongful conviction is unfathomable to all but to those that experience it. But most everyone agrees that society should do all it can to make people who experience this nightmare as whole as possible upon exoneration.
It is a common assumption that the innocent receive monetary compensation and needed services upon release. Shockingly, though, state laws that compensate the wrongfully convicted vary widely and the vast majority are woefully inadequate. Take this quiz to test your knowledge of how different states measure up when it comes to fair compensation for people exonerated of wrongful convictions."
