Innocent Cathy Woods compensated for $ 3 million after 35 years in jail. She spent more then three decades jail term after being convicted of murder, but in 2015 she was found innocent, prompting her to file a claim for compensation for what she had suffered in the cell for decades.

According to Sky News, which quoted ABC News, Cathy Woods was cleared of DNA testing, following a cigarette, found at the crime scene.

Cathy’s 68-year-old lawyer said recently that her client Cathy Woods compensated for $ 3 million as part of a partial settlement of a lawsuit filed under federal civil rights.

But Cathy will continue to demand higher compensation from the city of Reno, Nevada, because she accuses judicial officials of fabricating her confessions after the crime.

Elizabeth Wang, a lawyer, said her client was ill at a mental hospital in Louisiana in 1979, when the crime was committed.

Cathy was released in 2015 after the fact that a student at the University of Reno was killed, and it was found that a colleague was involved in his liquidation.

The records of the US judiciary reveal that Cathy is the most unjustly imprisoned American, and later her innocence. She now lives with relatives in Washington state.

Counsel maintains that nothing can compensate the former prisoner for what she has suffered, but that the money will guarantee her at least some care.

Under a law in Nevada, which came into force this year, unjustly convicted people can claim damages in excess of 3.5 million dollars.
