Ray Towler Spent 29 Years Behind Bars for a Crime He Didn't Commit, Ohio to Pay Him $2.5 Million

Last year I wrote several posts about Ray Towler (pic) the inmate who spent 29 years behind bars for a child rape he did not commit.  Cleveland.com is reporting that Towler has settled with the state of Ohio over his wrongful imprisonment.  Something called the Controlling Board has agreed to pay Towler $2.5 million.

 Towler was sentenced to life in prison for raping an 11 year old girl.  DNA evidence obtained with the assistance of the Ohio Innocence Project.
