Default Nevada Governor Signs the Strongest Compensation Law in the Country

Nevada Governor Signs the Strongest Compensation Law in the Country

Nevada is 35th state to enact compensation

Las Vegas, NV – Today Governor Steve Sisolak signed a law to compensate innocent Nevadans who were wrongfully incarcerated for crimes they did not commit (Assembly Bill 267). Nevada is the 35th state in the nation to enact a compensation law to help the wrongfully convicted rebuild their lives after exoneration.

DeMarlo Berry, who spent 23 years in prison for a Las Vegas murder he did not commit, advocated for the legislation and attended the bill signing ceremony. On June 30, 2017 Berry was exonerated based on a confession from the real perpetrator and other new evidence of his innocence, with the help of the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center and the Clark County District Attorney’s Conviction Review Unit. Berry, who has not received any financial assistance since his release, will be eligible for compensation under the new law.

Way to go, Nevada!
