Description

New York states says it has a "moral obligation" to tend to those who are wrongfully convicted. Once released, however, those who were wrongfully put behind bars often spend years waiting on compensation, while others never receive any payment at all. Reporters for the New York City News Service take a look at what happens after the prisoner's release and find several flaws in the state's system.
