"Kevin Fox"

This poor man, Kevin Fox, was wrongfully accused of raping and murdering his 3-year-old daughter and served time before being cleared by DNA evidence.

    I tell ya’, bein a husband/father can be a thankless proposition. At least he got 8 million for the aggravation.

    @get real & others: I agree & this was the 1st thing that came to mind while reading this story.

    I mean,don’t get me wrong,I do feel bad for this man & can only imagine what he went through,especially losing his child (RIP btw)…but if this case involved a Black or Hispanic man?

    They would’ve served decades behind bars until proven innocent & wouldn’t have been compensated not even a $1mil…SMH

    Unless they had him in protective custody,he had a BRUTAL Time inside. Being a Child Rapist-Murderer will insure you of being Brutalized by the inmates as well as the guards. A million for each month sounds about right to me.
