I cannot believe that Gov. Perdue did not know about this case before she signed the cuts in the budget. There is definitely a problem when the frail and elderly of N.C. gets cuts, but we have to give someone 700,000.00 for being wrongfully imprisoned. The district attorney should be held liable in some form. He should have had more than a 13 or 14 year olds identification. He probably did, however, it could have been questionable, but let's close a case. What is wrong with our system?
Because he's black.

700,000 is not enough for 14 years.
