legal fees.

In this case, i would say Justice delayed isn't justice denied.

27 freaking years is a whole lot mehn. It calls to mind the deceased Nelson Mandela (God rest his soul).

I wish him the grace to forgive those who wrongly accused and convicted him of the crime he never commited.

^^^ yeah, he'll be rich but then who knows what he must have gone through in prison, emotionally and health wise, and again the lost years he'll never get back, as per his family (if he already had one). money is never really a consolation when you look at these issues closely sad
