You conveniently left out that the garnish was for unpaid child support.
I don't care if he was in prison or not, he should make good on child support after he is out.
had this man not been jailed....he could have gotten an education...he could have gotten job experience etc....texas refusal to pay is based on semantics....those years of jail robbed him of a lifetime of experiences and the ability to promote himself in life...the state took his most productive years
It certainly reads as completely unfair, doesn't it?
He also left out the fact that the defendant wasn't "wrongly convicted". The State dropped the charges. Yeah, after 18 years that is strange but there's no background info about the case either.
I wouldn't exactly call that wrongful conviction.
Something is being left out of the explaniation, how can charges be dropped once someone is convicted? There is something else going on here.
Don't mess with Texas...
Texas government bulldozing citizens good.
Child support he couldn't pay because he was wrongly sent to prison
Back child support he might be able to pay if he hadn't been wrongly sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit
or if they'd given him the $1.4 million that the State owes him for sending an innocent man to prison for 18 years
The Anthony Graves balance sheet
$5,420 Total to be collected by the state (to be paid to the mother of his now-grown children for expenses she incurred between 1998 and 2002)
$1,440,000 Money owed to Graves by the state ($80,000 for each of the 18 years he spent behind bars while being wrongfully accused by the state of a capital murder)
Separate names with a comma.
