Missouri would provide restitution for those released from prison when DNA testing proves their innocence under a bill approved by the Legislature and sent to the Governor. The bill mandates DNA testing of all incoming felons as well as those now incarcerated. Should DNA evidence free a prisoner, the state would give that prisoner $50 for each day wrongly spent in prison. The bill, which had been approved by the Senate, is now approved by the House and is on its way to the Governor.
