TX: From convicted sex offender to millionaire, man gets new life

Dallas (CNN) — ____ ____ has has been spending most of his time these days living in a tiny room in a no-frills northeast Dallas nursing home. Until recently, he had a roommate who slept in a bed 2 feet away, and staff brought him three square meals a day.

Only a few hours passed each day in which he didn’t think about his burden of four decades: being a convicted sex offender. Full Article

  1. Q

    At least this man was cleared. I don’t feel $0960,000 is enough for what the state of Texas did to him. It sounds like he had questionable attorney.

  2. Tired of hiding

    I am thrilled that this man got his life back and some compensation for the hell he has been forced to endure on a daily basis. This singular instance clearly illustrates that Innocent people are convicted and placed on this absurd list all the time as many of us have state our innocence and being placed here via by lazy lawyers giving bad advice and making plea deals.

    When one is accused of a sex offense it is guilty until proven innocence. Fair trail…not gonna happen. Jury of your peers…often impossible as in this man’s situation.

    Again good for him and let’s hope that this shines some light on this travesty called the RSO that so many of are innocent victims of!

    There should be a law that if a prosecutor puts an innocent person behind bars and this person is subsequently cleared, then the PROSECUTOR must serve the entire original sentence of the wrongfully convicted person.

  4. USA

    Well, this is a truly sad story. If many of you recall, there was a case some time back where a man (worked for the City of Long Beach/landscape/caucasian) was arrested for multiple rapes. He was identified in line ups. He was done. Then, they did a DNA test and he was cleared! The perpetrator turned out to be African American? Then, when I was dealing with my case some years back, a nice young man who resided in Long Beach was arrested for Rape (my attorney told me the story). His girlfriend had him arrested. He fought the case for over a year. THe DA or LB offered him a plea of 3-years in prison? Finally, the girls Aunt collaborated his story and they where together after the fact/the DA confronted the girl and she admitted this! Case dismissed and she was allowed to go on her way without being charged/it was later found she had done this to an ex boyfriend as well. Sad. I truly feel sorry for this man. This is not the same type of case. Now, we are all obviously guilty of something, but there has to be some point where people realize rehabilitation exists and first time offenders should be given a chance. Sad story

  5. Brubaker

    Good for that awareness from texas…wrongly convicted…now here in california what’s the money payout for court personnel obstruction of justice ..?..tampering with evidence ..?..fixing a court record so no open court re-read…?..keeping a real private attorney from the case before sentence..?..stand down to correct the record so as to protect the misconduct from exposure ..?..how much is a setup worth..?..they get state personnel to protect the local public court personnel misconduct by standing down to correct injustice ..to correct the record..even a local civil rights activist in orange county called on my behalf to correct the record…they are crooked …how much for that..???????????

    Brubaker,
    You’re totally correct! California “justice” system is skewed in favor of the prosecution and not justice, not innocent until proven guilty. Crookedness, obstruction of justice, threats, suppression of evidence, prosecutorial misconduct all seem to be the accepted norm in this state, no matter what the crime. We all know, however, politicians and law enforcement are exempt from those “norms”.
