DAVIS, LARRY & ALAN NORTHRUP: Oddee online -
116,434. After serving nearly 18 years of a 20-year prison sentence for the rape of a housekeeper, two men were set free and compensated in millions when DNA evidence exonerated them of the crime. Larry Davis and Alan Northrup were locked away in Clark County, Washington in 1993 when DNA evidence wasn’t available.
But when it did become available, the University of Washington’s Innocence Project picked up the case and went to work, eventually freeing and exonerating Northrup and Davis in 2010.
The men settled with the county for $5.25 million each. Oddee online report ‘10 of the Worst Wrongful Imprisonment Cases’
