    a sex offender by a local corrupt police chief, and knowing what he went through in prison and the crippling restrictions on his daily life now that he's out, I'd have to agree with you that that's a miserable proposal.  

    Indigence kept him from an adequate defense -- along with the falsely produced evidence against him.  There's a little ray of hope now that he's gotten hold of his records and could possibly mount a case against the PD, but his life has been more or less destroyed.  Though he'd disagree with me: he's remarkably contained in his rage, and just trying to rebuild his life.
