Crime Pays…

If this ain’t about the craziest shit I ever heard.  This fool got oooooooveeeeeer!! Am I the only one looking at his picture and thinking he’s gonna blow that money on booze and meth? After saying that I am speechless…

Kenneth Moore, 49, admitted that he was the one who shot his friend Darrel Benner to death in 1995 during a beer-drinking binge, in front of two witnesses, in Piketon, Ohio, but an appeals court later ruled that he was entitled to a new trial because prosecutors had withheld evidence. At a new trial, with memories failing, Moore was found not guilty. State law thus calls Moore’s nine-plus years served “wrongful imprisonment,” entitling him to compensation, and in July the Ohio Court of Claims approved a payment of more than $500,000 (plus legal fees) for Moore’s having pulled the trigger that night.
