tereseus1 saidwell the justice system preys on individuals who can afford the right legal council. Only poor people are convicted. And only poor people get the lawyers fresh out of law school. the ones without experience. i really hope he is compensated for the time taken out of his freedom.
It also says he was sexually assaulted in the shower, and we know what that means. Will he get more compensation for that, as well, or will his being gay disadvantage him in our legal system once again? A woman who's raped might get some consideration, but I wonder about a gay man.
Plus what if he acquired HIV in prison? He was apparently only about 21 when he started his 3 consecutive life sentences (worse than many killers receive or serve), and I would expect blood work was done when he went in, which could prove if he contracted HIV while incarcerated. Would that entitle him to even greater compensation, for having potentially shortened his entire life, and reducing the quality of the life he has remaining?
I hope it's possible to continue to follow his case.
