Legislature compensates Crotzer

first_imgBoth the House and Senate have passed a bill providing $1.25 million for Alan Crotzer, who spent more than 24 years in prison for crimes he did not commit.The bill passed the House by a vote of 116-0 and the Senate 33-5.Sen. Dave Aronberg, D-Greenacres, said the money can never fully compensate Crotzer for the years the state took away from him, noting that while imprisoned Crotzer’s mother died, his ankles became disfigured due to ill-fitting prison-issued boots, he was stabbed by another inmate, suffered from dehydration and infections, and his shoulder still troubles him because of a lack of proper medical care.“But at long last his wait for justice has come to an end,” said Aronberg, adding that “this is one of the most important pieces of legislation we will have this session.”“Mr. Crotzer, I can’t even imagine what you have been through and whatever little bit we can do here in the Florida House, hopefully will make your life a little bit better,” said Rep. Ellyn Bogdanoff, R-Ft. Lauderdale, the majority whip.“This is your day,” said Rep. Luis R. Garcia, Jr., D-Miami, looking up at Crotzer in the House gallery. “I cannot fathom what you went through in 24 years of wrongful incarceration. God bless you, Alan.”In brief remarks earlier in the session, Crotzer said: “The whole world was upside down when I got out. Without some strong support, including from the Innocence Project [which helped secure his freedom]. . . I wouldn’t have made it.. . . Compensation would give me an education as well as the tools to rebuild my life.”Crotzer was freed from prison in 2006 after postconviction DNA testing proved his innocence of a 1981 rape, kidnapping, and robbery.Crotzer had spent 24 years, six months, 13 days, and four hours in prison — more than half his life.Following Wilton Dedge in 2005, Crotzer becomes the second person compensated via a legislative claims bill for being wrongfully incarcerated in Florida prisons. Seven other inmates have been cleared in recent years, typically because DNA evidence showed they could not have committed the crime for which they were convicted.
