"William Gregory spent eight and a half years in a Kentucky Prison for a rape he did not commit — leaving his son on state child support.
But with his freedom came a twist straight out of Kafka: not only did he get no compensation, but the state then sued him for the child support it paid while he was in prison.
"At least compensate me for the time," said Gregory, who was released on account of DNA evidence. "Say 'I made a mistake. We made a mistake, and pay that man!'"
He said he had nothing when he got out of jail.
"I was sleeping on the street," Gregory said."
