The Wheels of Justice Turn SLowly

But they do turn.

A man who spent nearly 21 years in prison for a toddler’s death, now believed to have been an accident, was awarded $756,900 by a state compensation board – $100 for every day he spent in prison.
…In 2004, the San Diego district attorney asked for a new trial and later dropped the case when a doctor raised doubt about Marsh’s guilt. Marsh was released from prison that year and married Philip’s mother.
Doctors retained by Marsh’s attorneys believe the drug mannitol, which was administered by physicians at Children’s Hospital to treat the head injury, was a “substantial factor” in the boy’s death.
Marsh has filed a $50 million federal lawsuit against doctors at the hospital and a coroner’s investigator, alleging they conspired to “cover up” alleged medical malpractice that contributed to the boy’s death.

Thank goodness the San Diego DA had some integrity.
