On December 10, 1991, East Palo Alto resident Rick Walker was convicted of a murder he did not commit. Linked to the crime by false testimony and questionable legal tactics, Walker would spend the next 12 years of his life in some of California’s most dangerous prisons. Once exonerated, he would face yet another barrier to justice: the California State legislature.

Entitled to one hundred dollars for every day spent falsely imprisoned, Walker’s attempts to receive his just due became caught in the partisan battle over the 2003 budget.
