DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — An attorney says a court’s official declaration this week that an Ohio man was wrongfully imprisoned for two decades clears the way for him to move forward with a lawsuit against the state to seek compensation.
But Roger Dean Gillispie, of Fairborn, says money “doesn’t fix the lost time” or the “mental anguish” he has experienced.
He was convicted in multiple rapes but maintained he’s innocent.
He argued there were police reports that somehow went missing that contained information that would’ve helped eliminate him as a suspect.
He was freed after a court vacated his convictions in 2011.
