Earlier this month, it was reported that in 2015, a record-breaking number of people were exonerated, meaning they were finally freed after serving time in prison for crimes they were wrongly convicted for. This record-breaking number counts to 149 people, who each spent an average of 15 whooping years.
These people who have been robbed of so much because they were wrongfully convicted are often given money from the government. However, no amount can really make up for everything they missed over the years.
If someone you know is arrested, you could very well believe they were wrongly arrested. In order to fight this, help bail them out of jail with a bail bond from Ventura Bail Bond Store. Then, work with your lawyers to prove your loved one is innocent. It’s less common these days for people to be wrongly convicted because technology and DNA has come so far (many cases these days where someone is exonerated is because the evidence from years ago is retested with updated technology and equipment).
