Judge: exonerated man owed millions for wrongful imprisonment


By Associated Press

MARLBOROUGH, Mass. - A man who spent nearly a decade in prison for a rape he did not commit should be compensated more than $13 million for his suffering, a U.S. District Court judge has ruled.

The judge said imprisonment worsened Eric R. Sarsfield's substance abuse problems and his social life.

"He has developed a condition of sudden jerking of his limbs that carries with it thoughts or dreams of dying," Judge Rya W. Zobel wrote in her decision, "He is often unable to sleep. He is also depressed and his alcoholism has worsened."

2. There is not enough money in the world
to buy a decade of MY life. Or yours.

Jeebus Christmas. What a world we live in.
