Fairbanks Democratic State Representative Scott Kawasaki has pre-filed a bill that would set up a system for compensating people wrongfully convicted of crimes. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the issue is of particular interest in Fairbanks.
There was a hearing in the Fairbanks Four case yesterday (Mon.). The hearing in state court was requested by the Alaska Innocence Project, which is attempting to overturn guilty convictions of George Frese, Kevin Pease, Marvin Roberts and Eugene Vent, the 4 men imprisoned for the 1997 beating death of John Hartman.
