CARSON CITY, Nev. (775 Times, NV Globe) – Attorney General Aaron Ford of Nevada has announced compensation for a man who was unfairly imprisoned.
Luqris Thompson was granted $351,390.40 in restitution for time served in jail beginning in 2007.
In April of that year, two guys, neither of whom Thompson knew, robbed him in the parking lot of the Las Vegas condominium where he lived.
Thompson was later caught and convicted of conspiracy to conduct a felony, burglary, robbery, first-degree abduction, and attempted grand larceny auto, despite the fact that no physical evidence connected him to the crime.
Before one of the real criminals contacted Thompson’s stepfather in 2012 to inform him he was innocent, he was sentenced to 9 to 23 years in jail.
