Margolis Law Supports Wrongful Conviction Legislation

February 13, 2020

Margolis & Gallagher fully support and embrace our legislators who are trying to do the right thing and compensate those who have been wrongly convicted of a crime.

“Wrongfully convicted people whose claims against the state were dismissed due to discrepancies in filing deadlines would again be eligible for compensation under legislation passed in the Michigan Senate Tuesday.

Under a 2016 law, people exonerated from crimes are eligible for up to $50,000 per year spent in prison from the state.”
