An innocent man jailed for 17 years after being wrongfully convicted of rape
will not get any compensation for the time he spent behind bars – but he has
been given a $111,000 bill for backdated child maintenance payments.

Alan Northrop and co-defendant Larry Davis were arrested following the
January 1993 rape of a woman near Vancouver, Washington State. In July of
that year, the pair were given jail terms of more than 23 years after being
convicted of first-degree rape, kidnapping and burglary.

But in a dramatic turnaround last year, Washington State prosecutors were
forced to withdraw the charges in light of fresh DNA evidence, and the men
were released having served 17 years in jail.—
