At least he gets something.But its nothing compared to lost time.

He is longest-serving prisoner exonerated by genetic tests

Mobile devices didn't exist in 1974, the year he was sentenced to life in prison for kidnapping a 9-year-old boy and raping him in a nearby field

"No, I'm not angry," he said. "Because I've got God."

Yeah. I'm not sure i would have felt the same. Losing out on having a family and everything else. He's a good man. He deserves a hell of a lot more then 1.75.
