Current Bill Summary

SB 488 - This act specifies that individuals convicted of a felony in a Missouri court who are later determined to be actually innocent solely as a result of a court order or jury verdict may be paid restitution of $50 per day of postconviction incarceration.

For purposes of the act, the term "actually innocent" shall mean that the individual was convicted of a felony for which a final order of release has been entered by the court, the individual was not concurrently serving a sentence for any other crime except as specified in the act, and the individual has been exonerated of the felony by a court of competent jurisdiction.
