Texas executed wrong man, report claims
I read this article and it cooked up a question and potential discussion. What happens when someone is found to have been innocent of a crime after wrongful execution? If the real culprit is identified and still alive, are they prosecuted or can the crime no longer be put to anyone? Also, is there compensation provided to the immediate family? How does the process of posthumous exoneration work? Any relevant information or thoughts are welcome.
