kenneth moore

World's luckiest murderer
Kenneth Moore pleaded guilty to a 1995 killing, admitting that he shot a pal in the head during a beer bender. Then, he changed his mind and appealed, and won because his trial lawyer had ignored some evidence that undermined the prosecution's proof. At a subsequent trial, the prosecutor simply didn't have enough evidence, and Moore was found not guilty. And now the Ohio Court of Claims, pretty much following the letter of the law, has just approved Moore's demand for $600k in restitution for having "wrongfully" locked him up. Crime pays. Big.

Not so... the dude confessed in 1995. This is just another example of the division between justice and the law.

Ouu! I just had a think! Let's find the family of the victim and have them bring a suit for wrongful death against this dude. Then we can demonstrate the fact that double jeopardy really is only a TV show now.
