Wrongfully Imprisoned Man to Receive Monthly Payments

May 6th, 2008 by flanews

An innocent man locked up for 24 years met with the states Chief Financial Officer today to finalize his compensation payment. Alan Crotzer was imprisoned for a rape he didnt commit. In 2006, DNA evidence proved his innocence. CFO Alex Sink signed the states settlement papers. The state will pay Crotzer 250,000 dollars in June. Then for the next 20 year Crotzer will receive a monthly check for 6,700 dollars. Crotzer says his freedom is more valuable than any money the state can give him.

Freedom is priceless. Money can never ever replace freedom, anywhere in the world. So my freedom is everything. The moneys just to help me get on with my life. Said Crotzer.

Crotzer plans to buy a house in Tallahassee and get a job working with the State Department of Juvenile Justice.
