Wrongly Convicted Man Upset Over Child Support Case
Dwayne Allen Dail, who was wrongly convicted of rape and spent 18 years in prison, appeared in court Wednesday in a civil suit for back child support. Dail is entitled to $360,000 in compensation from the state for the wrongful imprisonment. New DNA evidence set him free, but Dail now says he feels imprisoned by his son's mother.
Lorraine Michaels, the mother of Dail's son, she filed the lawsuit. The suit seeks a "reasonable sum for the care and maintenance of the minor child" for the years Dail was in prison.
I understand that the Ms Michaels wants back child support although we really have to look at the picture. Dail did nothing but be in the wrong place at the right time. Okay she wants Dail to shell out some of that $360,000 dollars. I personally do not feel that he should pay anything from that money he received! The state illegally incarcerated the man; and to make matters worse she want to take some of that money for him being illegally incarcerated for 18 years for her pocket!
The right thing to do is sue the state for a violation of her son's 14 amendment rights; pain and suffering.
It is not fair to give the man double jeporady for the States mistake!
