Dion Harrell spent two decades on New Jersey’s sex offender registry.

He had trouble finding a job. He couldn’t be alone with his kids. For a time, he was homeless.

But when a DNA test finally proved his innocence, the state had nothing to offer him for those years.

State lawmakers could change that. A bipartisan bill (A1037) would allow people to receive $25,000 for every year spent under the state’s supervision, which includes sex offender lists and parole.

Innocent people who pled guilty would also be eligible.
