Kansas Governor Jeff Coyler signed a new law that compensates those who were wrongfully convicted AND wrongfully put on the sex offender registry. This bill, although not intended, recognizes that the sex offender registry is tantamount to punishment. The law gives $65,000 per year to those wrongfully imprisoned, plus $25,000 per year to those who wrongfully were placed on parole, probation or the sex offender registry.
